Construction of one of the largest solar plants in Portugal

With an installed capacity of 180 MWp, the Santas solar plant is set to become one of the largest solar power plants in Portugal. The plant will comprise 336,448 photovoltaic modules and will help avoid the emission of more than 70,000 metrics tons of CO2 per year. Providing power to more than 100,000 households, the Santas solar plant will turn Monforte (more than 3,000 inhabitants) and Borba (more than 7,000 inhabitants) into positive energy municipalities. Injection to the national grid is foreseen in the first quarter of 2024. Thanks to the support of our EPC partners Gensun, Siemens Energy, Painhas, the construction works are already progressing.
