Grupo Gransolar closed an important agreement with Eranovum, a Spanish group dedicated to accelerating the energy transition, for the transfer of three photovoltaic plants under development in the regions of Madrid and Castilla la Mancha, in Spain. This transaction is part of the growth experienced by the company’s project development business line, seeking the best allies to continue driving the growth of renewable energies.
The three plants included in the operation have a total installed capacity of 14.7 MWp and are expected to be operational in 2025. Combined, the plants will enable an annual production of 30 GWh, which will avoid the emission of around 6,000 tons of CO2 per year and provide enough energy to supply around 10,000 homes per year, or the equivalent of around 7,500 electric vehicles. The development of the plants will create around 120 direct jobs.
100% clean vehicle recharging
Eranovum plans to extend through these plants the innovative concept of the photovoltaic station, which allows the charging of electric vehicles with 100% renewable energy supplied directly and under self-consumption regime by the solar plants, without tolls or additional costs. This is a pioneering concept, since, unlike the electric charging stations, the electric vehicle charging station is connected to the solar photovoltaic plant and has enough power to provide ultra-fast recharging to users who need it.
“Contributing to an initiative like this one to promote sustainable mobility encourages us to continue advancing in the development of photovoltaic projects. One of our principles is to establish alliances with companies aligned with our idea that there is another way of producing energy that is much more efficient and sustainable and, in this sense, we are fully satisfied with this agreement,” explained Alberto Macía, Gransolar’s Project Development Director.
José Luis Aguirre, co-founder and partner of Eranovum, said: “Eranovum’s aim is to accelerate the transition to a new energy era, and solar energy production, which has always been in our DNA, is a key part of this. These new plants will undoubtedly contribute to our goal of building a diversified portfolio to produce clean and competitive energy to meet the energy needs of our electric vehicle charging point grid”.
