“What is so special about this project is that we will generate green electricity at market prices without any kind of subsidies, a first in Europe. We are therefore entering a new phase where the energy turnaround is concerned: solar power is now cheaper to produce than conventional power,” said Matthias Taft, senior energy executive at parent company BayWa AG.
The project is located in the south of Seville with a total capacity of 175 MWp, more than 300 GWh of solar power will be generated in future from an area of around 265 hectares – this corresponds to the annual consumption of roughly 93,000 ordinary Spanish households. Don Rodrigo will be the first solar park of this size in Europe to manage completely subsidy-free.
