Plans for a 250mw solar photovoltaic (PV) plant to be built in the autonomous region of western Spain known as Extremadura were recently approved by the local government. The solar PV power plant would be the third largest in the world.

The exact location will be in the Royanejos municipality. Local media have reported that that the French company Dhamma Energy is behind the project.

Before the project can move any further, the necessary environmental and administrative permits still need to be obtained. The project is predicted to support at least 500 jobs, with about 70 permanent positions amongst those. Total investment is predicted to be some EUR 270M (USD 256M).
