Upon completion, the two sites will produce approximately 23,400,000 kilowatt hours of power, the energy production equivalent to supply over 10,500 families. The company has said it will also reduce carbon dioxide emissions by approximately 2,641,000 kilograms or 5,822,408 pounds.
"Les Mees will be one of the largest solar energy projects of its kind in France, and as a result, we needed to partner with a market leader that could deliver superior results," said Patrick Decuyper, CEO Europe and co-founder of Enfinity.
"The Les Mees project marks an important step for Satcon as we continue to expand on our international growth and officially enter the French utility scale solar market," added Steve Rhoades, Satcon’s president and chief executive officer. "Satcon has been part of most of the world’s largest scale solar power plants and we see tremendous momentum in France."
Les Mees is scheduled for completion this October.
