RWE is taking big steps towards expanding its solar business in Europe. The company has started construction works on a 92-megawatt ac ground-mounted photovoltaic project in Andalucia in the province of Cádiz. The “Gazules” project consist of two solar farms, Gazules 1 and Gazules 2,with a rated capacity of 46 MWac each. Early construction works have already started on Gazules 1. Approximately 240,000 bifacial modules will be installed on a total area of 140 hectares. Bifacial solar cells consist of a double-sided module, which allows solar irradiance to be absorbed from the front as well as from the rear side of the module. A second glass pane on the rear side of the module ensures that refracted light is captured from the rear solar cells. Thus, increasing production and creating a higher efficiency module at the solar plant. Full commissioning of the entire project is expected by the end of 2023, after which Gazules will be able to supply the equivalent of 20,000 Spanish homes with green electricity annually.
