The joint photovoltaic installation of Casas de Don Pedro and Talarrubias consists of three solar plants called Castiblanco Solar, Valdecaballero Solar and Navalvillar Solar of 42.9 MWp each, totaling a combined capacity of 128.7 MWp. The plants are located in the municipalities of Talarrubias and Casas de Don Pedro (Badajoz), occupying an area of 310 Ha.
The installation will consist of the latest photovoltaic technology based on 378,000 polycrystalline silicon modules of 340 Wp that will occupy a net catchment area of 734.000 sqm, with one axis tracking system and 3 MVA core inverters capacity.
The expected specific production is 2,016 kWh/kWp, which translates into an average annual production of 259.5 GWh, equivalent to an average annual consumption in Spain of 109,000 households.
The energy evacuation will be carried out through a new 30 kV/220 kV collector/elevator substation, which will collect the charges of the three photovoltaic installations, and through a high voltage overhead line of 220 kV of 7.8 km length will be connected through the existing infrastructures of the Mesa de Copa substation, located in Logrosán (Badajoz) to a 400 kV evacuation line connected to the 400 kV substation of Valdecaballeros.
These projects acquired by Enel Green Power, are in full construction expecting its connection to the grid in Q3 2019.
