BayWa r.e. has commissioned the Lacs Médocains solar farm near Bordeaux in France. The plant has a total capacity of around 41MW, enabling it to supply around 20,000 households with green power.
BayWa r.e. is planning to secure long-term Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) with terms of up to 20 years for the project.
"Thanks to our project management expertise and BayWa r.e.'s own system design, we were able to complete the project on schedule, despite the very limited timeline for construction imposed by the environmental prescription and the commissioning deadline," says Benedikt Ortmann, Managing Director at BayWa r.e. Solar Projects GmbH. "Next to providing a reliable source of green energy, we are pleased to announce that we will implement an educational and environmental programme on site."
