EKZ Renewables AG has acquired the «Algibicos» photovoltaic project in the Murcia region of Spain. The 49-megawatt plant does not receive any state subsidies, meaning its power will be sold on the market. The ground-mounted solar plant is located close to the city of Murcia in southeast Spain. After a construction phase of around nine months, commercial operation is expected to commence in the fourth quarter of 2020. In order to increase production, single-axis solar trackers are used so that the photovoltaic modules can track the sun throughout the day. The solarplant is expected to generate 92 GWh of clean power every year, which corresponds to the energy requirements of around 20,500 households.
