The solar project Utrilla is situated adjacent to the solar farm El Salobral, whose acquisition Luxcara announced at the end of 2017. A projected capacity of 30 MW leads to a total capacity of 75 MW by the sister parks El Salobral and Utrilla.

Tracker systems for Utrilla

Due to differences in topography, tracker systems will be used for Utrilla, which adjust the solar modules according to the altitude of the sun, thereby leading to optimized returns. Connection to the grid is planned for the second half of 2020.

Joint use of substation

“The immediate vicinity of the two solar farms allows us to create considerable synergies. For example, the substation of El Salobral will be used by Utrilla as well”, explains Philip Sander, Managing Partner of Luxcara.

The solar farms El Salobral and Utrilla in Spain were developed by the project developer Hive Energy. They are part of a portfolio for institutional investors.  (HCN)
