Developers building solar park along French highway


From pv magazine France

French highway operator Vinci Autoroute, a unit of France-based infrastructure company Vinci Group, is partnering with solar project developer Tryba Energy to build a ground-mounted PV facility along the A19 motorway, on a five-hectare area located near the town of Chantecoq, in the Loiret department of the Centre-Val de Loire region of northern-central France.

Once operational, the grid-connected plant will produce an average of 6,100 MWh annually, which is equivalent to the consumption of around 1,500 households in the area.

The €4 million project is being financed by Tryba Energy with its own funds and is scheduled for commissioning by the end of 2023.
