Photovoltaic Plant

La Solanilla

Trujillo, Extremadura / Spain


La Solanilla Solar Farm is a 50 MW dc PV plant located in Trujillo, 50 km from Cáceres, in the Spanish region of Extremadura.

This project is key for FRV due to its wealth of natural resources and the company’s track record in the area where the founding team of FRV began its journey in the industry.

After producing its first kWh in 2019, La Solanilla reached COD in May 2020 and now generates approximately 103 GWh in clean energy per year, supplying energy to approximately 35,000 Spanish homes and avoiding the emission of 72,000 tons of CO2 annually.
