    Endesa receives environmental authorization for three new solar plants in Huelva

    March 28, 2023 - CE Noticias Financieras


      Endesa, through its renewables division Enel Green Power España (EGPE), has received the Unified Environmental Authorization (AAU) for the construction of the Campos de Al-Andalus I, II and III solar plants in the province of Huelva.

      The facilities, in which Endesa will invest 73 million euros, will be located between the municipalities of Gibraleón, San Juan del Puerto and Trigueros and will have an installed capacity of around 109 MW.

      As indicated by the company in a press release, these three authorizations are joined by three others obtained last year, Campos del Condado I, II and III located between La Palma del Condado and Villarrasa, which will have an investment of 67 million euros and 100 MW of installed capacity.

      In this regard, Endesa has explained that obtaining the AAU is "one of the fundamental requirements" to be able to build a renewable facility, so the company is now processing the necessary documentation to be able to start construction work on these six solar plants in the first half of 2024.

      In Huelva, the company has one solar facility, San Antonio, in operation since December 2021. This solar plant is producing 49 GWh of renewable energy annually, i.e. the annual energy consumption of the towns of Almonte and Gibraleón combined.

      As it did in San Antonio, Endesa, through EGPE, will apply the sustainable construction model in these two new plants, whose materials and construction elements will be donated to the local community for the use of different entities. This is precisely one of the main lines of work of Endesa's renewable energy subsidiary, which also includes collaboration in the area of improving employability.

      This project of Endesa's renewable subsidiary, Enel Green Power España, is planned from the processing phase with preventive environmental measures associated with the protection of flora and fauna, adapting the facilities to allow the free circulation of species and creating a vegetation screen.

      In addition, Endesa "in order to maximize the socio-economic impact that the projects have on the community", prioritizes, among other actions, the incorporation of local labor and the contracting of services. In this sense, it has advanced that training courses will be carried out in the installation of photovoltaic panels and in the operation and maintenance of renewable plants, in order to train and promote specialized local labor.

      Endesa's renewable energy division, Enel Green Power España, has 48 hydroelectric plants, 13 wind farms, one biomass plant and eleven photovoltaic plants in Andalusia, two of which came into operation in 2022, adding new renewable capacity to the Andalusian distribution networks.
