In France, construction of the innovative Montclar solar project


Voltalia (Euronext Paris, ISIN code: FR0011995588), an international player in renewable energies, announces that it has launched the construction of the Montclar project, a 3.7 megawatt solar power plant located in France in the town of the same name, in the Alpes de Haute Provence department – Provence Alpes Côte d’Azur region.

Winner of the national call for tenders from the Ministry of Ecological Transition dedicated to innovative projects, this solar power plant project is located in the town of Montclar, at a place called Côte Belle, near one of the only ski resorts self-managed properties in France, on a plot of land which has one of the largest solar deposits in the country.

The Montclar project is located on 4.2 hectares, has 8,600 solar panels and will provide green electricity to more than 2,500 inhabitants of the department. The project has a 20-year power sales contract.

The power plant project is located on a steep site in a mountainous environment. To meet the challenge posed by these steep slopes, Voltalia will use an innovative metal structure fitted with steel cables on which low-carbon, high-performance solar panels will be hung. The project benefits from partnerships with several leading French scientific institutions, such as the CEA and the MINES ParisTech school, which will support Voltalia in analyzing the benefits of the innovations deployed.

Following the agenda: Q1 2022 revenue April 20, 2022 (after market)
