Upsolar has commissioned a 545 kW solar project for the Angouleme-Cognac International Airport in France.
Solstyce provided engineering, procurement and construction services on the project, which consists of a 445 kW parking canopy and a 100 kW array on a hangar rooftop. Combined, the systems are expected to produce about 600 MWh of electricity per year, which is approximately 10% of the town's residential energy consumption.
Upsolar and Solstyce established two joint ventures, Novengo 2 and Novengo 3, to develop the carport and rooftop systems, respectively.
‘In recent years, our partnership with Solstyce has empowered businesses and schools throughout France to take control of their electricity bills and enhance sustainability efforts with clean energy,’ says Sebastien Prioux, managing director at Upsolar Europe.
