Solar plant Generación Solar Investment
Renewable energy (Environment)
Generación Solar Investment is a holding company for three solar projects, located in La Villa de Don Fadrique, near Toledo, Spain. The three sites have a total capacity of 1.4 MW and were connected to the national electricity grid in September 2008. In 2013, the plant provided 600 households with green electricity. Triodos Renewables Europe Fund holds 51% of the shares in the holding.
Energy is a necessity in modern life but the current dependence on fossil fuels to provide it has a high environmental and social impact. We believe that a fundamental transition is needed away from a carbon based economy to a renewable one. By lending and investing in this sector we try to stimulate this transition, with our main focus on financing solar, wind and hydro energy.
