(Boursier.com) – Voltalia It announced that it has started construction of the Monclare project, a 3.7 megawatt solar power plant, located in France in the town of the same name, in the Alpes-de-Haute-Provence department.
Winner of the national call for bids from the Ministry of Environmental Transformation dedicated to innovative projects, this solar power plant project is located in the town of Montclar, a place called Côte Belle, near one of the only self-managed ski resorts in France, on land with one of the largest solar deposits in the country .
The Montclair project is located on an area of 4.2 hectares, contains 8,600 solar panels and will provide electricity to more than 2,500 residents of the department. The project benefits from a 20-year electricity sales contract.
The power plant project is located on a steep site in a mountainous environment. To meet the challenge posed by these steep slopes, Voltalia will use an innovative steel-cabled metal structure on which low-carbon, high-efficiency solar panels will be hung.
The project benefits from partnerships with several distinguished French scientific institutions, such as CEA and MINES ParisTech, which will support Voltalia in analyzing the benefits associated with published innovations.
