EDF Energies Nouvelles has been awarded building permits for two photovoltaic power plants totaling 15.3 MW in capacity in Sainte-Rose, Reunion. This photovoltaic complex is the most powerful yet to have received authorization in France, the company says.
Construction will start in the next few weeks, with commissioning scheduled to take place in several stages from late 2008 onwards. The facilities will supply the public electricity grid with power from more than 100,000 photovoltaic panels manufactured by French company Photowatt.
