Iberdrola Plans to Build the Largest Solar Power Plant in Italy

Last Updated on 28th February 2024

Iberdrola has signed an agreement with ib vogt for the construction of a 245 MW photovoltaic project in Sicily, Italy. Iberdrola plans to add 60 MW, bringing the total to 305 MW.


The project, called Fénix, is scheduled to start construction in March, and it will be the largest photovoltaic project under construction in the country. Italy currently has only 60 plants with more than 10 MW, and the average project is 26 MW.

When operational, with its 424,638 photovoltaic modules, the plant will generate around 400 GWh per year, avoiding the emission of 119,000 metric tons of CO2 into the atmosphere. In addition, it is expected to create direct local employment for around 500 workers during the construction phase and more than 100 permanent jobs during the commercial operation phase.


The agreement for the construction of Fénix consolidates Iberdrola's growth in the Italian market and its contribution to the country's energy security. Moreover, this type of facility facilitates the decarbonization efforts of large industrial customers by providing renewable energy through the sale of long-term power contracts.


Project Fenix stands as a significant development for both Italy and Iberdrola. It signifies Italy's commitment to accelerating its clean energy transition and positions Iberdrola as a major player in this endeavor. The project serves as a stepping stone towards a cleaner and more sustainable future for both entities.
