Solar power in Spain

It is among the first few countries to implement large-scale solar PVs, and it is now the world's first concentrated solar power (CSP) country. In 2018, the country installed 7,011 megawatts of solar energy overall, with 4,707 megawatts of solar PV installations and 2,300 MW of CSP. According to a 2016 study conducted by energy consumption experts Mirubee, by installing solar panels for residential purposes consumers in Spain can save approximately 24% on their monthly electricity bills.

The figures alone are quite impressive. As per data from the" Red Eléctrica de Espana" (REE), the peninsular region had 11,277 megawatts of PV power by the end of December 2020. According to Eurostat data from 2019, Spain is at least among the first four countries in the EU in terms of total renewable capacity, including solar as well as wind and hydro.

Don Rodrigo in Spain

It is Europe’s first subsidy-free utility-scale solar project. The project began in 2012 in Southern Spain and everyone knew that it will make grid parity in Europe quite feasible. It has a maximum capacity of 175 MW peak and a yearly production of 300 GigaWatt/hour, which is enough to power approximately 93 thousand regular Spanish houses for a year. More than 5 lac Astronergy and GCL polycrystalline modules have been deployed, with optimal efficiency of 17.6 percent.

Olmedilla Photovoltaic Park 

It is a solar power plant with a capacity of 60 megawatts (MW) in Olmedilla de Alarcón, Spain. Back in July 2008, when it was completed, it was the world's largest PV plant.  The project used more than 270,000 traditional solar panels with typical crystalline silicon solar cells.

Olmedilla Photovoltaic Park produces 87,500 MW-hours of electricity annually, which is considered enough to power 40,000 houses. The total project cost was around €384 million (US$530 million). 

Arnedo Solar Plant

This photovoltaic solar plant is installed in Arnedo, La Rioja, Spain. T-Solar is responsible for the installation as well as the operation of this power system.  It was constructed in 2008 by Isolux Corsán. the cost was €181.  The plant has a total capacity of 34MW and is made up of 172,000 modules (200 W each). It is spread out over an area of 173 acres (70 hectares).  Arnedo Solar Plant generates roughly 49,936,510 kWh power per year, which is enough to supply 11,451 houses.
