Leading international company committed to sustainable mobility and energy with strong technical expertise, CEPSA will add three new renewable energy projects in Castilla-La Mancha. The company will develop three photovoltaic plants in the towns of Campo de Criptana and Arenales de San Gregorio (Ciudad Real), with an estimated capacity of 400 megawatts.
The installation of these solar plants will involve an investment of more than 280 million euros and their construction, which will start at the beginning of 2025, is expected to generate more than 420 jobs, reaching nearly 700 jobs in the peak phases of their development.
Once in operation, these projects will produce an estimated annual energy output of 840 GWh, which is equivalent to the consumption of approximately 250,000 households for a year, i.e., nearly one third of the domestic consumption of Castilla-La Mancha. Furthermore, the production of this renewable energy will avoid the annual emission of 336,000 tons of CO2.
There are now nine projects that Cepsa will develop in this Community, with a total capacity of 1,200 megawatts, generating more than 2,100 jobs during their construction, with a total investment of more than 840 million euros. Once in operation, these projects will produce an estimated annual energy output of 2,500 GWh, which is almost equivalent to the total domestic consumption of the entire region. Furthermore, the production of this renewable energy will avoid the total annual emission of over a million tons of CO2.
