In the past the area around Cuenca, a region roughly 130 kilometres south of Madrid, was used mainly for farming. However, when PROSOLCAM, the investor, bought the 22-hectare site there were no protests from the locals. After all, the rumours had already spread that the use of land for solar power stations was a sustainable economic option and the municipality was proud to show that it was committed to active environmental protection. For CYMI, the engineering and construction company responsible for the solar power station, this project was a good opportunity to reinforce its position as one of the most important system integrators for solar power in Spain with more than 30 MWp of power already installed. When this new 9.5 MWp of solar generated electricity is fed into the grid the investor expects an energy output of almost 15 million kilowatt hours per annum. As a comparison, this corresponds to the amount of electricity used by roughly 7,000 4-person households. CYMI’s decision to use Yingli solar modules was taken because of Yingli’s strong history of good results in Germany and Spain and also because of the excellent price/performance ratio, which is key in order to get the best returns on the invested capital.
