Two orders for installations in La Fare-les-Oliviers, a village near Aix-en-Provence in the South of France, have been completed by Conergy. One of these orders consisted of a 4.5MW solar park on a site in the southeast of the village for a local grid operator and energy provider. The other project consisted of two solar carport plants totalling 100KW which will provide shade for 56 cars in the summer heat of Provence.
The construction of the solar plant, which covers a site of 9.5 hectares, was completed in May and some 18,000 Conergy “P Series” solar modules will now be generating around 6,500 megawatt hours of clean solar power per year, enough to supply more than 1,800 homes. An official opening ceremony for the facility took place this week on 17th June with representatives of Conergy and UEM in attendance along with the Mayor of La Fare-les-Oliviers.
