Voltalia announces the launch of the construction of a new 8.2MW solar power plant in France.
Voltalia has chosen to equip the fixed part of the Carrières-des-Plaines plant with SunPower E-Series solar panels. SunPower will produce the majority of the solar panels in its French facilities. "We're pleased to support Voltalia by supplying a total of 18.3MW of high efficiency solar panels for this new power plant as well as two other solar facilities in the region, as announced in July." says SunPower Executive Vice President Peter Aschenbrenner.
"Our three solar plants currently in construction in France, totalling 2.8MW, demonstrate our teams' ability to use best-in-class technology. This allows us to enhance both the efficiency and the reliability of the future plants, which is key in a long-term investment perspective", says Sébastien Clerc, CEO of Voltalia.
