247MWp cluster, made up of 5 solar plants in Almochuel, Zaragoza
Vendimia is our first project built in Spain. It is a cluster of five solar sites, located in the province of Zaragoza, with a total of 247 MWp.
The project is operational and is one of the first subsidy-free large-scale solar projects in Spain.
Vendimia has close to 615,000 bifacial solar panels across more than 650 hectares, installed in multi-row trackers, which optimise the orientation of the panels towards the sun and maximise the production of renewable energy. Likewise, the cluster has two aerial transmission lines of 18 and 20km respectively that will allow an efficient supply of energy to the local network.
Guaranteeing the preservation of the natural environment and local biodiversity has been one of the priorities during the development of the project, which is expected to be operational for around 30 years. In this regard, Lightsource bp has carried out various actions, including measures such as planting native species or installing a hedgerows screening to protect the cattle route that crosses the Vendimia land.
In addition, the company has collaborated with the NGO DEMA to install a Lesser Kestrel nesting building on the perimeter of the solar project to provide a safe breeding area for this small falcon native to the area.

We inaugurate Vendimia in Zaragoza, Spain
Our first solar project in Spain came online in June 2021. Vendimia produces enough clean electricity to power more than 100,000 homes a year.
