First solar photovoltaic plant, the Isla Mayor Solar Photovoltaic park in the province of Seville, has been operating non-stop since October 2007
Solarpack’s first solar photovoltaic plant, the Isla Mayor Solar Photovoltaic park in the province of Seville, has been operating non-stop since October 2007, avoiding 6,160 tons of atmospheric CO2 a year.
Over this decade the park has generated an average 154,000 MWh a year, a considerable amount bearing in mind that the average Spanish household energy consumption is 3.3 MWh a year. The plant, owned by 70 private investors from different Spanish regions, provides energy to 4,770 homes.
To celebrate the plant’s 10th anniversary, Solarpack hosted a ceremony attended by Isla Mayor’s mayor, Juan Molero, plus ex-mayors Ángel García Espuny and José Manuel Aviñó, who owns the land, and more than 80 Solarpack’s representatives, including the president, José Galíndez, and CEO, Pablo Burgos.
At the event, Pablo Burgos recalled that the commissioning of this park was a major step forward for the company and an important milestone in the development of solar energy in Spain and he thanked the investors who from the beginning trusted in Solarpack and supported this project. He also confirmed that the plant has since then met all expectations thanks to the importance that Solarpack places on the operations and maintenance of its plants.
Solarpack, an industry pioneer in Spain, has seven projects and a total installed capacity of 37 MWp across the country.
