Project Castrum is a 48MW agrivoltaic solar PV project in Italy.
Located in the Municipality of Montalto di Castro, province of Viterbo in the Lazio region, the plant is planned to be operational by the end of 2023.
As the second of Cero’s large-scale agrivoltaic plants in the country, the project is progressing well through its early works, and will produce clean energy for the region, while also enhancing sustainable food production.
Once completed, it will generate enough renewable electricity to power the equivalent of over 32,000 homes, improving air quality and avoiding 28,000 tonnes of CO2e emissions per year. Alongside this, at least 65% of the 87 hectares that Castrum sits on will also be used for agricultural crops.
