EGPE switches on 50 MW of wind in Galicia

Endesa's Enel Green Power Espana wind parks

December 27 (Renewables Now) - Spanish utility Endesa SA (BME:ELE) said on Thursday its renewables unit Enel Green Power Espana (EGPE) has connected to the grid 50 MW of wind farms in Spain's Lugo province.

The company invested a total of EUR 61 million (USD 67.6m) in the 12-MW Paradela and the 42-MW Serra das Penas parks. Both are located in the municipality of Paradela.

The 21 wind turbines will produce some 185 GWh per year of clean power, enough to meet the annual demand of 47,000 families and offset roughly 121,300 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions annually.

These wind farms are part of the 540 MW of wind capacity that EGPE secured in a Spanish renewable energy auction held in 2017. Earlier this week, EGPE acquired a 1,037-MW Spanish solar project portfolio from renewables infrastructure builder Prodiel SL.
