Vodafone and Iberdrola ink solar power agreement

Iberdrola and Vodafone have joined forces to provide clean solar energy to Vodafone customers in Germany, Portugal and Spain.

Under the agreement, Iberdrola will supply 410 gigawatt-hours (GWh) of renewable solar energy annually. This includes the energy from Iberdrola's first solar project in Germany, the Boldekow PV plant, with a capacity of 56MWp.

The collaboration aims to support Vodafone's net zero journey.

Joakim Reiter, Vodafone Group Chief External and Corporate Affairs Officer, said: "These agreements across Europe underline Vodafone’s commitment to ensure our customers will continue to benefit from electricity purchased 100% from renewable sources.

"They also provide Vodafone with improved energy security and long-term price certainty as we work towards achieving net zero in our operations by 2030."

Aitor Moso, Global Clients Director of Iberdrola, said: "Agreements with progressive businesses like Vodafone are increasingly important in allowing new renewables projects to be built, and we now look forward to accelerating the delivery of these solar PV plants."
