Located in the municipality of Aguimes on Gran Canaria, the newly commissioned projects include Gran Canaria I and II, along with Telde I, IV, and V. Naturgy estimates these facilities will collectively generate 38 GWh of annually, sufficient to power approximately 11,650 homes.

The utility invested EUR 20 million (USD 21.5m) in these projects, further solidifying its renewable energy capacity on the Canary Islands, which now totals 136 MW. This figure encompasses 12 wind farms and nine solar installations.
