Iberdrola has secured the Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for building a new 375MW photovoltaic scheme in the town of Cedillo, Cáceres, Spain.

This plant will provide clean energy to around 178,000 homes and is expected to prevent 77,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions annually.

It will feature 576,000 bifacial photovoltaic modules that will allow higher production as they have two light-sensitive surfaces, which in turn help to generate over 582,400MWh of green energy a year.

Faramaxu from Malpartida de Plasencia will deliver the transformers.

IMEDEXSA of Casar de Cáceres will provide the towers of the evacuation power line, while Ecoenergías del Guadiana from Extremadura has carried out environmental studies.

Construction of the plant will create up to 800 jobs during peak periods.

The power generated by the plant will be evacuated via an encapsulated substation that also cater to two other photovoltaic installations with a total capacity of 100MW and a hydroelectric plant of almost 500MW.

This project has been supported by the Town Council and the Cedillo Agrarian Society.

It will be located on a communal farm owned by a large number of local residents.

The new photovoltaic plant at Cedillo joins the 12 photovoltaic projects currently being developed by Iberdrola.

The plants under construction total 630 MW, half of which are located in Extremadura.
