- Spanish solar energy developer Alter Enersun has secured building and construction licences to start developing 262 MWp of solar farms in the city of Huelva, southerly Spain, the city board said on Monday.
The permitted capacity will be spread in between eight solar farms-- LUZ I, II, III, IV, V, VI VII as well as VIII-- all located within the Huelva municipality.
Alter Enersun plans to invest an overall of EUR 160 million (USD 170.7 m) in the LUZ effort, while the city expects to see an inflow of EUR 27.3 million per year to its coffers during the operations phase, according to its news release.
Building of the 62-MWp LUZ I sub-project will kick off in March, with the strategy to have the solar farm in operation by the end of 2023.
Alter Enersun first concerned Huelva in 2015 to develop a set of solar farms. Among the firm's upcoming projects in the city is one for a 200-MW solar farm as part of the Andalusian Green Hydrogen Valley proposal led by Spanish oil significant Cepsa.
