Construction Of Solar Project In Montclar, France Begins


Reading Time: 1 minutes


Voltalia, an international player in renewable energies, announces that it has begun construction of the Montclar project, a 3.7-megawatt solar power plant located in France in the municipality of the same name, in the Alpes de Haute Provence department – Provence Alpes Côte d’Azur region.

Winner of the Ministry of Ecological Transition’s national call for tenders dedicated to innovative projects, this solar power plant project is located in the municipality of Montclar, in a place called Côte Belle, near one of the only self-managed ski resorts in France, on a plot of land that has one of the largest solar deposits in the country.

The Montclar project is located on 4.2 hectares, has 8,600 solar panels, and will provide green electricity to more than 2,500 inhabitants of the department. The project has 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 metal structure equiped with steel cables on which the low-carbon, high-performance solar panels will be hung. The project benefits from partnerships with several leading French scientific institutions, such as the CEA and the MINES ParisTech school, which will support Voltalia in analyzing the benefits of the innovations deployed.
