Sunstroom Energy Investments has announced plans to build a 50 MW solar thermal electricity plant in Saucedilla, Cáceres, in the Extremadura province of Spain aiming to raise over 300 million euros to fund the project.

Thermostroom 1The new solar thermal electricity plant is expected to comprise a 271 hectare thermoelectric solar plant called Thermostroom 1. The plant will employ parabolic trough CSP technology.

The Thermostroom 1 is to be completed in 2 years and generate an annual revenue of approximately 36 million euros, once operational.

The tariff paid by Sunstroom’s utility partners for the project’s renewable electricity output is guaranteed by Spanish law at €0.2784 per kWh during the first 25 years of the installation, and then at 75% of this level for the rest of the project life (approximately 40 years).

Sunstroom was founded in 2006 and has since established three solar power facilities in Spain in the provinces of Navarre, La Rioja and Castile La Mancha.
