Enel Green Power España (EGPE), fully owned by Endesa Generación, has begun the construction of the 84.7 MW »Totana« photovoltaic project, representing the company’s largest solar plant in Spain. The overall investment in the construction of the facility amounts to approximately €59 million ($68.9 million). The facility, located in the Region of Murcia, is scheduled to start operation in the third quarter of 2019. Once fully operational the solar photovoltaic facility, composed of 248,000 photovoltaic modules, will be able to generate around 150 GWh per year.
»Totana« is the first of the seven solar projects, for a total capacity of 339 MW, which were awarded to Enel Green Power España during the Spanish government's third renewable tender held in July 2017. The other six projects will be located in Extremadura (three in the province of Cáceres, in the municipality of Logrosán and three others in the province of Badajoz, in the municipalities of Talarrubias and Casas de Don Pedro).
