The president of the Board of Communities of Castilla-La Mancha, Emiliano García-Page; the Minister of Economy, Industry and Employment, Patricia Franco; the president of the Diputación de Toledo, Álvaro Gutiérrez; the mayor of El Carpio de Tajo, Germán Jiménez; the general director of Gas and Electricity of Naturgy, Manuel Fernández; and Naturgy Generation Director, Ana Peris, attended the inauguration and commissioning of the Carpio de Tajo photovoltaic solar plant, the largest installation of these characteristics in the province of Toledo.

This plant, located in the town of El Carpio de Tajo, has 148,422 modules and a capacity of 50 megawatts (MW), and will produce around 90 GWh per year, equivalent to the annual electricity consumption of about 25,000 homes, higher than consumption of the inhabitants of El Carpio de Tajo and Talavera de la Reina.

The investment that Naturgy has made in this project reaches 33 million euros and has led to the creation of some 150 jobs between the construction, operation and maintenance phases. This infrastructure will displace the use of other sources of conventional electricity generation, contributing to reduce around 53,000 tons of CO2 per year 1,304,800 tons during its entire useful life, in addition to other pollutant emissions.

Mr Manuel Fernández, CEO of Gas and Electricity of Naturgy said that "With the development of this project, Naturgy reaffirms its commitment to Castilla-La Mancha and demonstrates the strong commitment of the company for the increase in renewable generation, contemplated in our Strategic Plan 2018-2022.”
