Cepsa has obtained the Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the construction of two photovoltaic energy projects in the province of Cadiz, totalling 257 MW. In this way, the company is making progress in Andalusia towards its goal of developing its own portfolio of renewable energy projects to meet its own energy consumption.
One of the key elements for the granting of this permit, the main authorisation required for the development of renewable projects granted by the Ministry for Ecological Transition and Demographic Challenge, was the company's commitment to sustainability and integration into the territory of each of the facilities, optimising and minimising the surface area used, thanks to the use of state-of-the-art panels that maximise the efficiency of the installation and minimise the occupation of the land.
The construction of these two projects is scheduled for the beginning of 2024 in the Cadiz municipalities of San Roque (157 MW), with an investment of 94.5 million euros, and Jimena de la Frontera (100 MW), with an investment of 60 million euros. During their construction, more than 550 jobs will be created, a figure that in the peak phases of their development will exceed 900 jobs, prioritising the hiring of local professionals and suppliers.
