The solar park located in the former mining area known as Santa Barbara in the Municipality of Cavriglia (Arezzo) is Tuscany's largest public photovoltaic facilities and one of the most extensive in Italy, occupying 40 hectares.
Consisting of two plants located next to each other in the former mine area, it boasts a capacity of 17 megawatts of 100% solar power and was designed to repurpose and rehabilitate the disused mines, while integrating itself seamlessly into the local terrain, so as to avoid compromising the aesthetics of the landscape. The facility occupies approximately 40 hectares in an area with limited agricultural or environmental significance, blending harmoniously into the terrain thanks to a thick stand of trees.
The installation is owned by the municipal government and will be operated for 20 years by Cavriglia SPV S.p.A. (a wholly-owned subsidiary of Estra S.p.A.) and Tegolaia SPV S.p.A. (a wholly-owned subsidiary of Estra S.p.A.). Overall, the park will generate power for around 20,000 residents. The energy produced will be sold on the market and the municipality will receive an annual concession fee.
