Green light for 32.2MW of wind capacity in the Spanish region
Iberdrola has confirmed that it has won support to develop two wind farms with a combined 32.2MW in Spain`s Canary Islands.
The company and a local partner will build the 13.8MW Las Aulagas and the 18.4MW Chimiche II wind farms in Tenerife, Iberdrola said.
Both projects have been authorized under the islands wind power quota scheme, which has allocated fixed subsidies to 450MW of projects, and now have all the relevant planning permits.
They will represent an investment of about 40m and are expected to be completed in about 21 months, the Spanish company said.
The wind farms will be Iberdrolas first in Spain since the opening of a 36MW facility in December 2012, just as the government halted subsidies for new projects.
