SOLAR POWER PLANTS IN ARAGON

The Teruel photovoltaic plant: Iberdrola España's first MWs of solar energy in Aragon

In line with our commitment to the energy transition, at Iberdrola España we commissioned our first photovoltaic plant in the autonomous community of Aragon in 2021. Expanding the presence of solar plants throughout the country, we reaffirm our commitment to solar energy, a 100% renewable and non-polluting source of energy that does not consume fuel or generate waste. The new plant, located in the province of Teruel, together with the Fuendetodos plant (3.67 MW) in Zaragoza, has also contributed to bringing the company's total installed capacity of clean energy close to 434 MW in this autonomous community.

Solar plants in Teruel

Iberdrola España has decided to build the first solar plant in Aragon in the province of Teruel in order to take advantage of the abundant solar resources available in the province. By transforming solar radiation into energy, we not only contribute to reducing CO2 emissions, but also invest in the development of the province by creating new green jobs.

Teruel solar plant

Located in the municipality of Azaila, the Teruel solar plant is made up of 142,740 photovoltaic modules and has a capacity of 50 MW, making it capable of supplying around 24,300 homes. Since its construction, this photovoltaic plant has avoided the emission of 19,000 tonnes of CO2 per year.

With this facility, Iberdrola España has shown that the supply of clean energy is compatible with the preservation of the environment and biodiversity: the Teruel plant promotes access to its facilities for sheep, thus ensuring a harmonious coexistence between renewable facilities and agricultural and livestock farming activities. This initiative is part of the company's commitment to achieve zero net loss of biodiversity by 2030, making the installation of renewable projects compatible with the preservation of the country's natural heritage.

Iberdrola España has allocated €30 million to the construction of this facility, which has served to boost the local economy, creating up to 250 jobs during the construction phase. With the creation of cutting-edge projects such as this, we are contributing to the revitalisation of the rural environment, which is now essential to lead the transition towards more sustainable energy consumption.
