Iberdrola has strengthened its presence in Italy with the construction of its first photovoltaic facility in the country, the 23 MW Montalto di Castro, in the central region of Lazio. The company continues to strengthen its portfolio of projects in Italy and aims to triple them by 2025.Once the assembly of the photovoltaic modules, the construction of the substation and the rest of the electrical infrastructures have been completed, the process of commissioning the plant and connecting it to the grid has begun. When it enters commercial operation, it will supply enough energy to cover the needs of more than 12,000 homes and will prevent the emission of 9,600 tonnes of CO2 into the atmosphere.During the construction phase, archaeological remains dating back to the Etruscan period were found, as well as ceramics, bronze elements and iron weapons. Thanks to the cooperation between Iberdrola and the Archaeology Authority, the materials have been transferred to the National Archaeological Museum of Vulci, one of the most important Etruscan localities in Italy.Iberdrola adds to the 43 facilities under development, totalling 1,500 MW, the signing of a development agreement with the company GreenInvest to develop 17 wind and photovoltaic facilities for a total of 327 MW. The company has also started four other projects totalling 288 MW.
