The Serol solar farm located in the municipality of Salinas, in the Alto Vinalopó region, in the Alicante province. The farm will have a total installed capacity of 49.95 MWp and will generate approximately 200 jobs locally.
Its 90,828 photovoltaic modules, distributed over almost 79 hectares, will generate an average annual power of 99,238 MWh. Once the facility is operational, it will contribute to the reduction of 61,583 tonnes of CO2 and will produce green energy that will supply more than 29,000 Spanish homes.
Serol is a project located outside the Natura 2000 Network and characterised by its high landscape integration and low visual impact, as a large part of the evacuation line will be buried and nature-restoration barriers will be installed, specially chosen to align with the topography, vegetation, and cultural elements. All this will allow an unhindered visual access to the landscape. These measures mean that this project in on course to obtain the Seal of Excellence in sustainability promoted by UNEF (Spanish Photovoltaic Union).
From a socio-economic point-of-view, Salinas and its population, together with adjacent municipalities, will see a revitalization of the area in terms of an increase in the active population, as 200 direct and indirect jobs will be generated during its construction, which will curb rural unemployment. In addition, the services of regional and local suppliers from different sectors will be needed to purchase the materials necessary for the construction of the plant.
The development of the Serol project has been based on criteria for optimal environmental and social integration of the plant, in order to meet the highest standards in terms of sustainability.
In terms of landscape integration, the installation includes:
Environmental education and awareness-raising activities to promote interest for nature:
Enhanced social benefit is another of the key values in all Esparity Solar projects, which is why:
