Project information

Located in Hijar, an important historical city of the “Low Aragon”, Hijar 2 Claveria 1 Solar Farm generates 50 MW of renewable, carbon-free electricity.

Hijar city is one of the key locations along the "Drum's Route," which hosts one of the oldest drum processions. This tradition is believed to have originated in 1517 when the Duke of Hijar requested the Franciscan Monks to celebrate Easter Week.

Hijar has a rich history as a coal mining region, with much of its recent development attributed to various coal mines and the presence of a 350 MW lignite-fired power plant located near the town of Andorra in the province of Teruel. However, in 2020, the power plant ceased operations. Since then, the region has shifted its focus towards renewable energy projects like Hijar 2 Claveria 1  which have been nominated as areas of  Strategic Interests for the Aragon region.

Hijar 2 Claveria 1 Solar Farm is situated approximately 4 kilometres to the south of Hijar city. The terrain is mostly flat, and any major construction work will be avoided in order to preserve the existing landscape. The project intends to preserve the existing vegetation areas by avoiding installations in such zones, thereby safeguarding the local flora and fauna.

The entire area is preserved for steppe birds like the Lesser Kestrel, which is very endangered in Spain. In addition to meeting various project requirements, Island Green Power plans to set aside extra land for harvesting, creating a space where these birds and other protected species can thrive.

Point of Interconnection is in MotorLand Aragón, a racing circuit with plenty of events such as Grand Prix motorcycle racing, Sperbikes, World Touring Car Cup, Porsche Championship and European Le Mans Series.


Hijar 2 Claveria 1 Solar Farm is a fully consented project and is expected to be connected to the electrical distribution grid by end 2024.
