The new wind farm, located in the region of Sicily, will start operating in 2023 with six 6.5 MW turbines distributed between the municipality of Santa Caterina Villarmosa and the Petralia Sottana substation. The works will start this year with the goal of being completed in 2023 and ready to be connected to the rest of the wind farms in the Italian network.

EDPR's current operational capacity in Italy totals 385 MW. With the 160 MW that the company has under construction and this new project, its total capacity will increase to 584 MW.

The company is also highlighting its commitment to lead the energy transition at a global level by planning to invest approximately 19 billion euros in the deployment of around 20 GW of renewable energy by 2025, as stated in its strategic plan.
