Solaria Energia y Medio Ambiente, the Spanish solar developer, had a good run in Q1/2021 with 90% annual increase in its total revenues of €22.9 million ($28 million). The company’s EBITDA increased 110% over the same period to €19.5 million.
Its power plants generated 82% more energy over previous year, with a total of 143 GWh.
Out of 1.57 GW power purchase agreement (PPA) capacity secured by the company, Solaria signed up 560 MW in Q1/2021, thanks to which it claims 73% of its 2021 target capacity is already secured. It is in negotiations with unidentified offtakers for another 2.17 GW.
The Spanish company exited Q1/2021 with €142 million ($173 million) in cash, and 1.828 GW capacity in operation and under construction. It is confident of increasing this number to 2.15 GW by the end of 2021. By 2025, its target is to reach 6.2 GW scaling it up to 18 GW by 2030 (see Spanish Solar Developer Aims For 18 GW Capacity By 2030).
“The heavy investments made in the last three years are beginning to bear fruit. In this sense, we have achieved remarkable figures,” said Solaria President Enrique Díaz-Tejeiro. “Likewise, with our goal of 18GW installations by 2030, we reaffirm our strong commitment to the energy transition and sustainability, contributing to a greener world.”
Management also shared that its 3 flagship projects—626 MW Cifuentes-Trillo, 595 MW Garoña and 782 MW Toledo projects—are on track to be delivered, represent 65% of the company’s installation target for 2022, at 3.15 GW. In Portugal, it plans to energize 500 MW capacity before 2025, and is interested in participating in more auctions coming up in the country.
Solaria is aiming to bring down its carbon emissions at the end of 2021 through a number of plans, including the Renewable Plan under which it plans to start renewable energy consumption for its facilities in Spain, Italy and Portugal this year.
