Picon Solar Park

A BayWa r.e. Project

To overview

Committed to local development in Castilla-La-Mancha

Picón is a 49.6 MWp photovoltaic project located in Castilla-La Mancha, Spain, being the second project we develop in the region. 

With a total area of about 90 hectares, the plant has a single-axis tracking system. 

Total output49.6 MWp
ConectionSET Picon 220 kV
ModulesAstroenergy 540W – 545W Bifacial
InvertersHuawei SUN2000 String Inverters 185KTL-H1 and 105KTL-H1
Output98,93 GWh
Surface 90 ha
CO2 emissions avoided per year70.000 tons of CO2

Our eighth subsidy-free large-scale solar plant in Spain 

Clean energy in Castilla- La Mancha

It is expected that the 50 MW Picon solar park, starts operations in Q4 2023. 

The energy produced will be equivalent to the annual savings of more than 70,000 tons of CO2. This is enough electricity to supply around 25,000 homes.

Throughout the development of the Picón solar project, which began in 2017, BayWa r.e has had the support of the local authorities and communities. 

Part of a PPA with Nestlé

The project is part of a power purchase agreement (PPA) that BayWa r.e. signed in 2022 with Nestlé, the Swiss multinational. Thanks to this 10-year agreement, the world's leading company in the food and beverage sector, will be able to supply itself with the electricity generated by the new solar park.

Picón, which will be located near Ciudad Real, will generate about 100 GWh of solar energy each year, and use some of that energy (62 GWh) to power Nestlé's operations in Spain and Portugal.

Glocal approach: Global Experience and Local Action 

To continue driving the energy transition in Spain, we have a dedicated team 160 professionals in the country. We have already installed over 500 MW of renewable energy capacity and currently have more than 2 GW in our wind and solar project pipeline. In addition we rely on the expertise and financial stregth of our parent company BayWa r.e. that has over 30 years of experience in the development of wind and solar energy projects around the world.
