219 MW solar project online in Portugal: The Directorate General of Energy and Geology (DGEG) in Portugal has announced issuing an operating license to what it calls as the largest solar PV plant in the country and the largest unsubsidized project in Europe. The 219 MW Alcoutim Photovoltaic Plant or Solara4 Project is equipped with 660,000 Jetion Solar high-efficiency solar panels each with an output of between 330W and 340W. Located in Martim Longo in Alcoutim municipality of Portugal, the solar power plant has 125 inverters, 40 transformer stations and is connected to the national grid through Tavira substation. DGEG said such projects are essential for the nation to decarbonize its energy sector, while contributing to the renewable energy targets set under the PNEC 2030.
Back in February 2019, Ireland’s Welink Investment Holding secured a 20-year power purchase agreement (PPA) with Audax Renovables for a 708 MW unsubsidized solar power portfolio which comprised both Solara4 Project and 46 MW Ourika project.
