RWE starts building first solar power plant in Italy

The Bosco Solar Plant located in Sicily is expected to generate 8.3MW of electricity, which is sufficient to supply power to approximately 7,000 households.

RWE, a German energy company, has initiated the construction of its first solar facility in Italy.

The Bosco Solar Plant, located near Palermo, Sicily, will be an 8.3MW ground-mounted installation consisting of about 15,000 bifacial modules.

It is expected to generate enough electricity to power approximately 7,000 homes.

The plant is set to be commissioned by the end of 2024.

Katja Wünschel, DEO of RWE Renewables Europe & Australia, said: “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.”
