The renewable energy will be produced by Sonnedix Bonete, a 50MW solar PV plant acquired by Sonnedix at the end of 2021, located in the province of Albacete, Castilla-La-Mancha, Spain.
The PPA has commenced at the beginning of 2023 and will have a total duration of eleven (11) years.
“We’re very proud of providing green electricity to energy companies of great presence in the Iberian Peninsula, a market of great importance for Sonnedix,” said Axel Thiemann, CEO of Sonnedix. “With over a decade of sustainable growth, we’re positioned as a leading independent solar producer, and we continue expanding our renewable platform not just in Spain but also in Portugal, where we set foot in 2021 with the acquisition of a 262MW portfolio.”
Sonnedix currently has a total capacity of over 1.3GW in Spain, including a development pipeline of over 660MW. The renewable energy producer entered the Portuguese market in 2021 through the acquisition of a 262MW solar PV portfolio, comprised of seven solar PV plants in advanced development and construction stages.
