Iberdrola gets environmental green light for the development of one of its photovoltaic systems in Salamanca

With a capacity of 50 MW, the installation, located in the Salamanca megacity of Villarino de los Aires, will induce enough clean energy to supply a population fellow to homes and will help the emigration of tonnes of CO2 into the atmosphere per time. • Iberdrola’s investment plan in the region foresees the installation of green MW in the coming times, therefore advancing its sustainabilitystrategy.Iberdrola has attained a favourable Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the development of one of its photovoltaic systems in Castilla y León, the Villarino factory, with a capacity of 50 megawatts (MW), located in the Salamanca megacity of Villarino de losAires.This new solar energy product installation will cover a total area of 280 hectares and will have further than photovoltaic modules. It’ll also induce enough clean energy to supply a population fellow to homes; in addition, it’ll avoid the emigration of tonnes of CO2 into the atmosphere per time and will represent an investment of further than€ 33 million. Its construction will have an important original element, both in terms of artificial suppliers and the involvement of over to 250 workers during peak work ages, until it’s put into operation, which is planned for this time, which will contribute to boosting the frugality and employment in thearea.A WORLD LEADER IN CLEAN ENERGY IN CASTILLA Y LEÓNWith the new factory, Iberdrola will support its commitment to Castilla y León, which is consolidating its position as a major centre for renewable developments in the company’s investment cycle to 2025, where it formerly manages further than MW-hydro and wind- making this independent community the region with the most’ green’megawatts installed by thecompany.Also in Salamanca, Iberdrola will invest€ 200 million to make another photovoltaic factory in Ciudad Rodrigo-318 MW-, one of the largest installations of its kind by Castilla yLeón.The company’s photovoltaic factory design in Miróbriga will involve artificial suppliers in the area and produce up to 800 jobs during peak ages. It’ll supply homes and avoid the emigration of tCO2 peryear.Iberdrola’s investment plan in Castilla y León foresees the installation of green MW in the coming times, therefore advancing in its sustainability strategy, grounded on the electrification of the frugality and acquainted towards the fight against climate change and the creation of wealth and employment in the communities where itoperates.Iberdrola works on multitudinous enterprise that combine the installation of renewable systems with the conservation of the natural diversity of ecosystems, minding for foliage, fauna and natural heritage. The concurrence of these renewable generation shops with conditioning related to husbandry, beast husbandry and horticulture are farther evidence of the company’s commitment to conservingbiodiversity.GREEN INVESTMENTS TO PROMOTE ECONOMIC RECOVERY AND EMPLOYMENTIberdrola is induced that the energy transition can act as a crucial driving force in the metamorphosis of the artificial fabric and in the green recovery of the frugality and employment. In this way, the municipalities are arising as a guarantee of the future with multitudinous enterprise grounded on’ green’principles that boost their exertion and their population. This is the case of these Castilian and Leonese townlets, girdled by 100 renewable energy generation installations, which join other near systems that Iberdrola is promoting and which will contribute to a sustainable recovery from the extremity and produce original employment.
