The Paiporta rooftop solar park was constructed on top of an office building in Valencia, eastern Spain, by the Spanish solar firm IM2 Solar. It started operation in August 2008.  

The facility was purchased after the successful completion of the initial start-up phase in 2009. Existing project financing from the Spanish bank Caja de Ahorros del Mediterraneo (CAM)  was acquired as part of the deal.

The planning and building processes ensured no shadows are cast by neighboring buildings. The location in Valencia is ideal for solar energy production, because of its high solar radiation levels of up to 1,900 kWh/m². A comprehensive operations and maintenance plan ensures the long-term performance of the plant.
