EDPR Powers Up 5-MWp Solar in France
- EDP Renewables has achieved a major milestone with the completion of its first 5 MWp solar park in northeastern France. The Neuilly project will generate enough electricity to meet the needs of 1,200 households and mitigate over 2,500 tonnes of CO2 emissions every year. This is just the start of EDP's renewables expansion into France, with plans to develop 330 MWp of solar capacity and manage an additional 388 MW for clients.

EDP Renewables has completed the construction of its first 5-MWp solar park in the Grand Est region of northeastern France. The Neuilly project, which consists of over 8,500 bifacial panels, is estimated to be enough to meet the electricity demand of around 1,200 homes and mitigate over 2,500 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions annually. EDP Renewables is also developing 330 MWp of solar capacity across several locations and is managing an additional 388 MW for clients. France is aiming to significantly grow its renewable power capacity by 2035, targeting between 75 GW and 100 GW of installed solar power capacity.
What Impact Will EDP Renewables' 5 MWp Solar Park Have in France?
- The 5 MWp solar park in Neuilly will generate clean energy to power 1,200 local homes in the region.
- This solar park is estimated to reduce 2,500 tonnes of Co2 emissions annually.
- The completion of the project marks a major milestone in France's solar energy ambitions, as the nation strives to increase its renewable power capacity to 75-100 GW by 2035.
- EDP Renewables is also developing 330 MWp of solar capacity across several locations, as well as managing an additional 388 MW for clients.
- This increased solar capacity in France will help the country to meet its target of generating 32% of its energy from renewable sources by 2030.
- The solar park in Neuilly can also create jobs in the area, from solar panel installation to maintenance of the equipment.
- The project will also provide economic benefits to the region, as the solar park is expected to generate up to €5 million in income over its lifetime.
