Alter Enersun, a leading company in renewable energy, has launched the Huelva 2021 project, with a new photovoltaic plant in the municipality of Huelva. Through this new plant, Alter Enersun has now installed 100 MWp in the province, which will generate renewable electrical energy equivalent to the energy consumption of the entire population of the municipality of Huelva.
Huelva 2021 is a 50 MWp electricity park that has a total of 113,686 solar panels that will produce 100 GWh per year. The production of the plant represents the equivalent of the consumption of a total of 28,000 households. Moreover, during the pandemic, the construction and start-up of this new plant generated employment for more than 250 people, in addition, 10 long-term permanent jobs were created.
The company GES, belonging to the same group of companies, was in charge of managing the construction work of this plant, which includes an EPC (Engineering, Procurement and Construction) contract consisting of a photovoltaic park, an electrical substation and an evacuation line.
More than 180,000 tons less CO2 annually
The Huelva 2021 photovoltaic plant, on its way to fully sustainable energy and business model, aims to reduce CO2 emissions by 94,400 tons annually, assuming conventional coal as the calculation reference.
This is the second photovoltaic project that Alter Enersun has realized in the province of Huelva. It was in December 2019 when the company inaugurated Huelva 2020, the first photovoltaic plant located in the city of Gibraleón. Also a plant with 50 MWp and CO2 emission reduction targets of 94,400 tons per year.
Local economic impact
The construction and commissioning of Huelva 2021 has a clear local economic impact. In terms of taxes and fees during the construction period, the plant involved an investment of 2,783,755 euros, which benefited the government. Added to this is what the plant will mean in the operating period, which, based on an estimate over 35 years, will mean a contribution of 5,250,000 euros.
