Catalan energy company Conecta2 has announced plans to build a solar farm in Nerja.

The Nerja site forms part of a wider project to extend the production of photovoltaic energy across Spain, with a further four farms being built in Palamós (Girona), Riudoms (Tarragona), El Prat de Llobregat (Barcelona), and Guadix (Granada). The five farms will create 10,000 square metres of solar energy panels.

In a press release the company said that it had already started construction of some of the farms and that it expects all five of the new installations to be up and running by the end of the year.

Conecta2 said it has invested 2.5 million euros in renewable energy to date.
