Beautiful French Plateau Will Be Home to 100 MW of Solar capability By End of Year

May 31, 2011 · Print This Article

On the lovely Puimichel plateau in Les Mées, France, two solar farms that are currently generating 18.2 MW are expanding into a much larger solar park capable of generating about 100 MW by the end of the year.

The solar arrays take up 89 acres, but will end up covering 200 hectares.  This is the largest solar farm project so far by the builder, Belgium-based Enfinity, and will be the largest

solar array in France.

What makes it different is the way the arrays are being built without the use of concrete foundations so the local sheep can still graze in the area.  This design is not only friendly to the sheep, but makes for a strikingly beautiful appearance as well (see a great photo here).
