Solar Park | Alcoutim

Galp's large-scale photovoltaic park in Portugal is located in the Algarve municipality of Alcoutim

With a total planned installed capacity of 144 megawatts, this energy production unit comprises four photovoltaic plants covering an area of 250 hectares:

  • Viçoso
  • Pereiro
  • S. Marcos
  • Albercas

The estimated annual production capacity is 250,000 megawatt hours of electricity, enough to supply more than 80,000 families and prevent the emission of 75,000 tonnes of CO2 per year.

This solar park represents the company's largest investment in solar energy in the country. It materialises Galp's commitment and vision to lead the transition to renewables, while laying the foundations for a new low-carbon economy and contributing to society and the country achieving their environmental goals.
