During this period, Solaria generated 430 GWh, which represents a 120% increase in production compared to the same period last year. Revenues increased by 73% to 49.5 million euros, EBITDA rose by 89% to 42.5 million euros and net profit grew by 60% to 23.6 million euros.

The visibility of the fulfillment of the strategic plan improves quarter by quarter, reaching 1,958 MW in operation and under construction.
