PVTIME – Voltalia (Euronext Paris, ISIN code: FR0011995588), an international player in renewable energies, announces that it has commissioned a new solar power plant in the vicinity of Alleins, France.

The 8.16 megawatt Carrière des Plaines solar power plant is located on the site of a former quarry in the municipality of Alleins in the Bouches-du-Rhône department, a site with one of the best solar deposits in France. This plant is made up of half crystalline photovoltaic panels and half concentrator photovoltaic modules, and benefits from a twenty-year electricity contract. Its production will cover the domestic electricity needs of more than 4,560 inhabitants.

In order to support the region’s development, the plant has a grazing agreement which allows the land to be shared with a local sheep breeder.
