In August of this year, we started working on the Francisco Pizarro Photovoltaic Park located in the town of Torrecillas de la Tiesa, province of Cáceres. Our technicians went there to carry out work on the installation of photovoltaic modules, low and medium voltage cabling, as well as work on the installation of transformation centers.
Now that the first phase of the project is almost complete, we have started work on Phase II, with work expected to continue until the end of March next year.
This photovoltaic park has an area of approximately 1.300 hectares between the Cáceres municipalities of Torrecillas de la Tiesa and Aldeacentenera. It will avoid the emission into the atmosphere of more than 245.000 tonnes of CO2 per year, with a total of 1.494.240 photovoltaic panels, making a total of 590 MWp of installed capacity.When completed, it will become the largest project in Europe to date, providing clean energy to 375.000 people a year.
This project has received an environmental impact statement from the General Directorate of Quality and Environmental Assessment of the Ministry for Ecological Transition and has an investment of 300 million euros, employing up to 1.200 people.
