RWE Commissions 44MW Casa Valdes


               RWE has commissioned the 44MW Casa Valdes solar farm in Spain. The project is located in the province of Guadalajara, close to Madrid. Casa Valdes is a ground-mounted photovoltaic plant and will be able to supply the equivalent of 30,000 Spanish homes with green electricity annually.  RWE installed 97,740 bifacial modules on an area of about 97 hectares. “The advantage of this approach is that the bifacial cells are embedded in a double-sided glass module by which the solar radiation can be absorbed from both sides – the front and the back of the module. This will help to increase production,” said the company. RWE Europe solar chief Katja Wünschel said: “The Spanish sun is a great partner of the energy transition. And innovative technologies like the bifacial modules used at Casa Valdes help us to make the best out of this energy source and this site. “I am also looking forward to the completion of our solar plants that are still under construction and the further projects to come in Spain as one of our core markets this year.”
