Tarquinia Solar Park

The Tarquinia Solar Park (near Viterbo), which is currently under construction, will be the largest photovoltaic plant in Italy. It will consist of more than 300,000 panels arranged over an area of 220 hectares, with a total of about 170 MW of fully renewable capacity. When fully operational, it will produce 280 GWh per year, an amount of energy sufficient to meet the needs of 111,000 households, thereby avoiding the consumption of about 26 million cubic meters of gas each year. This means that 130 thousand fewer tons of CO2 will be produced and released into the atmosphere. This performance will also be possible through the use of double-sided solar panels (which absorb energy on both the front and back surfaces) mounted on trackers. These are devices that can change the orientation of the panels in order to "chase" the sun.

Italy's largest agrivoltaic plant

Tarquinia will also be a record-breaking plant for another reason. In actual fact, it will be the largest agrivoltaic park in Italy. It will be built on land belonging to a local company that will collaborate with Enel Green Power to integrate the plant with agricultural activities: in particular, fodder and borage will be grown in the vacant areas between the rows of panels and the overhead power line buffer strips, while olive trees will be planted in the perimeter strips.

A driving force for the whole area

The new plant marks an important step on the path toward the energy transition and is part of our Group's commitment to the sustainable development of local areas. Its construction will have positive repercussions on the economy and communities in Upper Lazio. Indeed, the companies involved in the construction are from the Lazio region, and most of them are from the Viterbo area, and they will employ up to 330 people during the estimated 13 months required for building the plant. Once completed, it will generate additional benefits, thanks to the crops that are present on the land it occupies.
