JIJONA’S solar power plant will soon be linked to the Iberdrola grid.
The energy company is currently enlarging its Jijona substation to distribute output from the photovoltaic plant, which is the Valencian Community’s largest.
Work on the plant, which is one kilometre away from the substation, is practically finished and the multi-national X-Elio, which has built it, is footing the €272,837 bill for the Iberdrola connection.
X-Helio is already planning a second phase at the Jijona plant and once both are in production solar panels of a 114-hectare site will produce enough energy for 19,000 homes and prevent emissions of 42,460 tons on carbon dioxide.
