Engie has actually begun business operation of a 12MW photovoltaic park in France.

The EUR12.7 m solar farm is located in the commune of La Batie-Montsaleon and will certainly create 18.5 gigawatt-hours of electricity to provide the Val de Durance electric network.

The site covers 22 hectares in its last configuration and stays clear of an old forest as well as a protected species, "Le Rosier de France".

The design of the project had to be adapted to naturalistic criteria. Local vegetation varieties were reseeded between the solar panel rows, while the fencings enable the passage of little pets.

The installation has actually been designed to be greatly obscured by trees and also blend right into the landscape.

Engie worked with regional as well as regional business on the building and construction and operation of the solar park.

Tax benefits are approximated at EUR74,000 a year, to be distributed in between the Sisteronais-Buech communes and the Hautes-Alpes department.

An eco-pasture will certainly be established with a local lamb dog breeder to aid preserve the site by keeping the plants under control.

Engie will certainly run the plant in partnership with neighborhood business.
