SOLAR PLANTS IN GALICIA

Iberdrola España transforms Galician sun into solar energy and boosts socio-economic development in Galicia

Galicia is a region rich in natural resources that can be transformed into clean energy. In line with its commitment to the fight against climate change, Iberdrola España has installed more than 2,200 green megawatts (MW) here. Most of these are hydroelectric power plants and wind farms, but since 2004 the region has also had a photovoltaic installation: the Larouco photovoltaic panels.

Number of solar power plants 1
Total installed capacity 0,10 MW
Year of first installation 2004

Solar plants in Ourense

 Ourense has an average number of hours of sunshine per year higher than the Spanish average. This makes it a suitable province for the installation of solar plants, capable of transforming solar radiation into green energy

Larouco solar plants

Located between the municipalities of Baltar and Xinzo de Limia, these photovoltaic panels are the first that Iberdrola España has installed in the region. They were built in 2004 at the Larouco electricity substation, next to a wind farm with which they also share a name, and have a power output of 0,10 MW.

Its installation responded to the Xunta de Galicia's desire to increase the photovoltaic power installed in Galician substations, which were built to evacuate the electricity generated by wind farms on surrounding land.
