More than 200 projects reach the milestone established last year by Royal Decree-Law 23/2020.
SÓLIDA achieves the admission for processing of 6,286 photovoltaic and wind MW in Spain
When the new Royal Decree-Law on renewables was published on June 24, 2020, the alarms went off in many offices and time began to run against many developers.
A maximum period of 6 months was established for the application and admission to process of the Prior Administrative Authorization (AAP).
On the other hand, a maximum distance limit of 10 km was defined with respect to what was requested at the connection point, something difficult to solve in such a short time for those who did not have the land closed or had not taken this condition into account.
“From the beginning we were clear that the final stretch of the year was going to be frenetic and we could not let our clients down,” says Andrés Medina, director of Business Development at SÓLIDA Energías Renovables, the engineering company that has presented the most administrative projects in Spain in the last years.
“In less than 6 months we have carried out more than 150 photovoltaic and wind projects, including substations, and more than 550 km of evacuation lines”, confirms Andrés Medina.
The effort has been worth it, since 100% of its projects, totaling 6,286 MW, have achieved the milestone of admission for processing in practically the entire national territory: Andalusia, Extremadura, Castilla-La Mancha, Murcia, Valencian Community, Castilla y León, Madrid, Galicia, Navarra, Aragón, Catalonia, the Balearic Islands and the Canary Islands.
“The pressure has been very high, but we have shown why SÓLIDA is today the leading engineering company in the sector”, concludes Andrés Medina.
