Iberdrola is consolidating its position as the leading promoter of photovoltaic solar energy, one of the most efficient technologies in the fight against climate change. The company's commitment to the development of this renewable source will allow it to add 1,400 new solar megawatts (MW) in Spain in the coming months. The company is currently executing 12 photovoltaic projects, with a combined installed capacity of 550 MW, half of them located in Extremadura, where Iberdrola is building the Almaraz I and II plants (80 MW), which will be connected to the grid this year, and the Tagus complex in Alcántara, comprising four plants with a total capacity of 200 MW.The company is also building six other facilities in Castilla y León and Andalusia using this technology, totalling 271 MW. These are the Villarino plant (50 MW) in Salamanca; the Guillena project (144 MW) in Seville; Cespedera (27 MW) in Cadiz; and Virgen de Aremos III (50 MW) in Palencia. In addition, Iberdrola plans to start construction this year on another six projects that will provide 873 MW of new solar power in four autonomous communities: Ciudad Rodrigo (318 MW) in Salamanca; Fuentes (50 MW), Valbuena (50 MW) and Manantiales (30 MW) in Guadalajara; Peñarrubia (50 MW) in Murcia; and Cedillo (375 MW) in Cáceres.
