Iberdrola is progressing in its plans to lead the energy transition and the recovery of the economy and employment in Spain. Now that the construction phase has been completed, the company has started up its first photovoltaic plant in the province of Teruel. Located in the municipality of Azaila, it consists of 142,740 photovoltaic modules and has an installed capacity of 50 MW. The photovoltaic installation, which created 250 jobs during the construction phase, produces clean energy equivalent to the consumption needs of 24,300 households per year, as well as preventing the emission of some 19,000 tonnes of CO2 per year.
With this new project, the company reinforces its commitment to Aragon, where it already operates around 500 MW, most of which is renewable, and plans to double this figure in the coming years with a further 500 MW of green energy in the pipeline with projects including the Peñaflor, Fuendetodos and Escatrón photovoltaic plants, which have connection access and environmental analysis. In addition, the company plans to promote the development of wind and photovoltaic projects totalling more than 700 MW in different areas of the community.
