Sonnedix signs 150 MW solar PPA with Equinix in Spain

Sonnedix, a renewable energy provider, has signed a ten-year power purchase agreement (PPA) with internet services giant Equinix to supply power from three 150 MW solar projects in Spain. Reportedly, the PPA is Sonnedix’s largest deal ever in Europe. The solar plants are located in Cuenca, Castilla-La Mancha. They will be operational by the end of 2024 and will have a total capacity of 150 MW. The plants will produce about 240,000 MWh of green electricity over the course of the ten-year contract, enough to power 71,000 homes in Spain while avoiding more than 36,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions every year.

In April 2023, the company secured a 12-year PPA with European steel product manufacturer Sidenor Aceros Especiales. The company will supply 36 MW of solar power from the Sonnedix Fraile project in Herencia, Spain. The supply has been guaranteed by the Spanish export credit agency. In March 2023, Sonnedix announced that its solar operating portfolio in Spain is now 819 MW, with a further 700 MW in its developmental pipeline. Its global portfolio is spread across ten countries and has more than 9.5 GW of capacity.
