Gáldar solar photovoltaic plant

    Gáldar, the largest photovoltaic solar plant in Gran Canaria.

    The photovoltaic solar plant of Gáldar has been developed in the facilities of the Parque Científico Tecnológico by the Mancomunidad de Ayuntamientos del Norte de Gran Canaria. The purpose of this project is to pour renewable and sustainable energy into the electricity grid, with the corresponding environmental and social benefit for the saving of polluting emissions generated by this type of plants.

    Its construction was awarded to a joint venture formed by ACCIONA and Construcciones Rodríguez Luján, with a budget of 772,333.80 euros. The project has a total surface area of 5,000 m2.

    The solar plant has a nominal power of 475 kW generated by 1,770 photovoltaic modules. 450kW will be installed in a fixed structure and 25kW in a single-axis tracker, while the entire low and medium voltage installation will be developed with a 630 kVA transformer substation.

    The Gáldar plant is part of the project called 'Parque Tecnológico de Gran Canaria- Área Experimental de Economía Circular', co-financed by the Cabildo de Gran Canaria and the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).
