Sierra Costera is the first wind facility to enter into service out of those awarded to Enel Green Power following the Spanish government's third renewable energy auction held in May 2017. Enel Green Power has connected to the grid its Sierra Costera I wind farm, which has a capacity of around 50 MW and is the largest facility of its kind in the Aragon region. The construction of the new facility, located in the municipalities of Mezquita de Jarque, Fuentes Calientes, Cañada Vellida and Rillo in the province of Teruel, involved an overall investment of 45 million euros.

Sierra Costera I is the first wind facility to enter into service out of the 540 MW of wind capacity awarded to EGPE in the renewable auction held by the Spanish Government in May 2017.

The company is currently building around 470 MW of wind projects in Aragon, Castile-León, Andalusia and Galicia, as well as 254 MW of solar capacity awarded in the third renewable energy auction, held in July 2017. The construction of this renewable capacity will involve an investment of over 800 million euros through 2020 and will increase Enel Green Power’s current wind and solar capacity by 52.4%.

This increase is in line with Endesa’s strategy aimed at decarbonising its generation mix, with the first milestone being 8.4 GW of installed renewable capacity by 2021 from the current 6.6 GW, involving an overall investment of around 2 billion euros.

Sierra Costera I is made up of 14 turbines and will be able to generate approximately 141 GWh a year, avoiding the annual emission of approximately 93,000 tonnes of CO2 into the atmosphere.
