New solar garden in Antequera

On Wednesday, the inauguration took place in Antequera of the Parque Solar Fotovoltaico Cortijo del Cura, the first solar garden in the area. Attending the ceremony were Pilar Serrano, delegate from the provincial Ministry of Innovation, Science and Business, Ricardo Millán, mayor of Antequera, Robin Schöck, director of Ansasol and representatives of JUWI, the company responsible for installing the plant.

There are 27,000 solar panels covering an area of 20,000 square metres, and the new plant will produce 1.89 megawatts of clean energy, sufficient to supply 3,500 people, around 7% of the population.

The €12 million project will reduce carbon dioxide emissions by around 2,200 each year and is seen as a valuable contribution to the fight against climate change through the promotion of renewable energy alternatives, while also creating new industries and increasing the quality of life in rural areas.
