Aura Power is working on a solar farm proposal at Quinta de Seves, Covilhã, with a capacity of 30MW. This solar farm will generate enough clean electricity to power the equivalent of around 14,500 homes, saving around 8,500 tonnes of carbon from the atmosphere each year.
Solar Farms not only increase the supply of clean power, but as solar is the lowest cost form of new energy generation, it will also help to reduce national power prices.

Listening to the views of the local community is very important to us and your feedback will help shape our design. We are always open to speaking to members of the local community to address concerns.
Please contact us using the contact form at the bottom of this page and a member of the project team will get in touch.
We have been undertaking several environmental and visual surveys to help inform our design so far. Our proposal offers several ecological and local benefits, along with continued agricultural use, with sheep being able to graze beneath the panels.
Our aim is to design the solar farm appropriately and as sensitively as possible to the surroundings, whilst maximising the generation of clean energy.
The site is located right next to the TSO substation to connect directly into the electricity network and avoid lengthy cabling.
Your feedback is very important to us. Please leave a comment and one of our project team will get back to you as soon as possible.
