Iberdrola has completed construction of the Conde plant located in the municipality of Palmela in Portugal. With an installed capacity of 13.5MW, the plant will prevent the emission into the atmosphere of 6,000 tonnes of CO2 per year. The installation has 25,000 solar modules that will produce enough clean, cheap and indigenous energy to cover the annual consumption of 5,000 households. The project, which has involved an investment of close to €11m, has generated up to 100 jobs, mostly local. This is the company’s second photovoltaic installation in Portugal, after the 27MW Algeruz II plant, which is already in operation following its commissioning last August in the district of Setubal.
