Gehrlicher Solar has unveiled plans to build a huge PV project portfolio in southern Spain. The systems, which are predominately of the rooftop variety, have a combined capacity of between 200MW and 400MW and are to be installed in the Murcia region.
The German project developers have been active in Spain for over a decade, installing 23MW, and this new portfolio signals its long-term support for the ailing Iberian solar industry. Although most of the installations will be rooftop arrays with capacities ranging from 20kW to 100kW, there are also plans to build a number of larger ground-mounted plants. Details on these utility-scale projects are scarce, but Gehrlicher has already established an investment fund aimed at financing them.
“The strategy of Gehrlicher Solar España is to continue to expand throughout the region of Murcia,” said Gehrlicher Solar's founder and CEO, Klaus Gehrlicher. “Thus we are working on the development of plants with lower capacity for the next two years, as well as on the planning of major projects with a total capacity of 200 to 400MW.”
