One of the first decisions that must be made when hosting a photovoltaic solar farms to pour the energy generated to the network is to choose a proper location (towns, existing infrastructure, etc) but also the legislative framework that is applicable since, it is involved a large number of both restrictions (protected areas, distances to streams and watercourses, etc) that will give us the guidelines to eliminate those unsuitable areas and certain criteria (proximity to power lines, slope, solar radiation, etc) according to which it will be made an evaluation of the suitable areas that condition any facility and, it is precisely for these reasons why the management of spatial visualization tools such as Geographic Information Systems (GIS) are particularly useful. The objective of this paper is to demonstrate how the aggregation of GIS to decision procedures in the field of renewable energy, can solve complex location problems. In the present case it will be appealed to the use of a GIS (called gvSIG) in order to obtain suitable locations to host photovoltaic solar farms in the Northwest of the Region of Murcia.
