Plenitude Starts Up 104.5MW El Monte Wind Farm
Plenitude, an Eni-controlled company integrating the production of renewables, the sale of energy services, and a large network of electric vehicle charging points, inaugurated the 104.5 MW El Monte wind farm.
It was inaugurated in a ceremony attended by representatives of ministerial, regional, provincial, and local institutions. The El Monte wind farm is located in the Spanish region of Castilla La Mancha.
The project is the result of a collaboration with Azora Capital, a strategic partner for Plenitude in Spain in the development of renewable energy projects, both wind and photovoltaic.
El Monte wind farm is now fully operational and generates renewable energy with 19 GE wind turbines, model Cypress 158, with the largest unit size of 5.5 MW installed in Spain.
The plant will produce about 300 GWh per year, equivalent to the domestic consumption of 100,000 households, considering an average consumption of 3.000 KW/h per household, and will boost Plenitude’s renewable energy generation in Spain. The project has also promoted direct and indirect local job creation.
“El Monte wind farm will contribute to the gradual decarbonization of the electricity sector in Spain, contributing to the energy transition process undertaken by Eni and to Plenitude's ambitious goals of achieving carbon neutrality by 2040 and supplying 100% decarbonized energy to all its customers.”
“The development of the wind and photovoltaic sectors is key to Plenitude’s growth strategy, which aims to reach more than 2 GW of installed capacity from renewable sources by the end of 2022, scaling up to over 6 GW by 2025 and over 15 GW by 2030,” Stefano Goberti, CEO of Plenitude, said.
