135MW of solar projects totaled in France


The French energy company Total has won several solar energy production projects with a total capacity of around 135 MW in the latest call for tenders in France.

The company said the projects will be operated through its Total Quadran subsidiary, dedicated to the development and production of renewable energy in France.

The largest ground-based solar power plant in France in France is a 50 MW project on the site of the company’s former refinery in Valenciennes in north-eastern France. The solar plant will supply green electricity to nearly 32,000 people when it is commissioned in 2022.

Another 25 MW capacity project, which should also be completed in 2022, will be built near its Grandpuits refinery in the Paris region and is expected to generate enough renewable electricity to cover the needs of nearly 17,000 people.
