Opening of Nexum in Fuenlabrada: Spain’s largest solar community positions Nexum as a forward-thinking retail park

Equilis has announced the implementation of Spain’s most extensive solar community at Nexum Retail Park in Fuenlabrada, Madrid. The self-sustaining system allows up to 1,100 nearby households to access 100% renewable energy all without the need for personal installation or investment.

The Nexum Retail Park solar community project by Iberdrola is a comprehensive approach to decarbonization, spanning three key areas: local renewable energy generation through self-consumption, supporting electric mobility with charging stations, and an innovative electrical infrastructure designed for maximum efficiency.

The solar community comprises 1,350 panels across three rooftops, with a total capacity of 735 kilowatts, producing over one million kWh annually. This installation will prevent 6,000 tons of CO2 emissions over the next three decades. In this self-consumption model, Iberdrola invests to enable local renewable energy use, supporting the transition to a decarbonized economy. Any resident of the area within 2 km of the facility can benefit from this initiative.

To accelerate electric mobility and decarbonize Spain the project includes an electric station with 8 semi-fast charging units and 5 ultra-fast chargers, capable of simultaneously charging 26 vehicles with 100% green energy from renewable sources.

Additionally, Iberdrola’s advanced electrical infrastructure offers real-time monitoring of the retail park’s power supply, allowing for anomaly anticipation, savings detection, decarbonation plan monitoring, and maintaining peak supply efficiency, ultimately reducing costs.

“As a developer dedicated to creating happy stories, I am humbly proud to be a part of a project that provides green energy to up to 1,100 families”, says Carl Mestdagh, Executive Chairman Equilis Europe.
