Nanosolar Inc. announced its largest solar photovoltaic (PV) installation to date, a 10.63 MW project in the town of Alfarrasi, which is located in the Valencia region of Spain. Developed by Smartenergy Invest AG and Advanta Capital Ltd., the new solar field is now the region’s largest PV power plant to date. The plant was energized earlier this month and is expected to produce energy to power 4,000 households per year.

The Alfarrasi installation will be capable of producing 16,500 MWh per year. The total amount of electricity produced by this Nanosolar project represents a savings of more than 5,528 tons of carbon dioxide emissions each year, and is equivalent to planting approximately 142,000 trees.

The town of Alfarrasi is an ideal location for this solar installation, which encompasses over 50,000 panels across 65 acres of former agricultural land. The region features a semi-arid climate with very mild winters and long warm to hot summers. Solar irradiance is above-average with a typical annual temperature of 22.3 °C (72.1 °F) during the day and an annual irradiation of approximately 1,650 kWh/m2.
