GO ECO GREEN21. Audax Renovables (ADX.MC), the energy group that integrates the businesses of generation and supplying of 100% renewable electricity and gas, continues its strategy of tirelessly promoting its renewable energy generation projects.
The company has acquired two photovoltaic projects in the towns of Polán and Los Navalmorales, both located in the province of Toledo, of 5MWp each. The aforementioned projects have been acquired from Energy Pool, the same counterpart that developed the Group’s different photovoltaic projects in the provinces of Guadalajara and Toledo that are currently under construction. Go Eco Green21 magazine states that according to a press report issued by Audax, the project includes the 5MWp project known as Los Arenales and El Toconal, in the town of Los Navalmorales, also of 5MWp, and the latter can be expanded by up to an additional 10%. Both projects will have the whole installation of approximately 30,000 solar panels, which will produce 16 GWh per year of energy, which is equivalent to the annual consumption of more than 4,600 households.
The Group continues to promote its commitment to renewable energy generation facilities, being these the continuation of successive others that, today, are being built in the same province of Toledo and Guadalajara.
Audax Renovables has been committed for years to the development of renewable energies to achieve a sustainable energy transition, in accordance with the trend that the European Union is promoting, and to continue generating quality both employment and growth. Just a few weeks ago, work began on many other photovoltaic projects in the provinces of Guadalajara, Toledo and Huelva.
For the construction of both projects, in Ready to Built status due to the advanced state of the permits referred to them, and that therefore aforementioned construction work will begin shortly, the Group ensures its accompaniment with first-rate contractors that meet high quality standards, and has an advanced process of closing supply and construction contracts under the EPC (turnkey) mode.
In part, both projects have been acquired thanks to the funds obtained from the second issuance of green bonds that Audax Renovables carried out a few weeks ago, amounting 200 million euros, and the issuance of green bonds eventually convertible into shares for amount of 125 million euros. The rest will be financed with own resources.
These projects are still framed within the Audax Renovables Group’s strategy to increase its 100% renewable generation portfolio, and therefore it is focused on closing other purchase agreements with the aim of supplying its customers with renewable energy produced in their own plants.
