RWE Italy 8.3 MW big

/ROME, April 29, 2024, 9:30 BST, RWE/  RWE has started the construction of its first solar plant in Italy. Bosco, an 8.3 megawatt (MWac) ground-mounted solar plant, will be installed in Partinico Municipality near Palermo, Sicily. On a 16-hectare site, around 15,000 bifacial modules1 will have the capacity to generate enough green electricity to supply the equivalent of 7,000 Italian homes. Commissioning is planned for the end of the year. Katja Wünschel, CEO RWE Renewables Europe & Australia: “Bosco is RWE’s first solar plant under construction in Italy. What makes it special is the exceptionally short time it took from the start of development to construction. Thanks to the implementation of a new accelerated permitting process in Italy, we were able to reach Ready to Build in less than 18 months. This is a great achievement and we look forward to realising our next projects in Italy, one of our key markets.”
