FRANCE: Continuing the deployment of its solar energy activities, EDF Energies Nouvelles announces the commissioning of the Casatejada solar photovoltaic power plant in Spain, with an installed capacity of 11.4 MWp.
Located in the Extremadura region, in the south-west of Spain, the Casatejada ground-based solar power plant is equipped with 152,400 photovoltaic panels, based on thin-film technology, supplied by First Solar.
The power plant annual output is equivalent to the annual consumption of more than 11,000 people.
The Casatejada power plant is 90 percent-owned by the EDF Energies Nouvelles group via Fotosolar, its local solar energy subsidiary.
Following the recent commissioning of the power plants of Arnprior (23.4 MWp) in Canada and La Roseraye (10.5 MWp) on Reunion Island, EDF Energies Nouvelles signs at Casatejada another large-scale photovoltaic project. The Group’s solar energy capacity in Spain now stands at 18.1 MWp gross.
