Opening of Nexum in Fuenlabrada (Madrid)

Spain’s largest solar community, capable of powering up to 1,100 households, positions Nexum as a forward-thinking retail park.

Equilis is proud to announce implementation of Spain’s most extensive solar community at Nexum Retail Park in Fuenlabrada, Madrid. This self-sustaining system allows up to 1,100 nearby households to access 100% renewable energy, reducing their bills by up to 40%, all without the need for personal installation or investment.  The Nexum Retail Park solar community project by Iberdrola is a comprehensive approach to decarbonation, 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 Fuenlabrada resident within 2 km of the facility can benefit from this initiative through the company’s website.

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.

Carl Mestdagh, Executive Chairman Equilis Europe: “As 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”
