Neoen wins 81.6MWp in solar projects in France

18 Feb 2021

Neoen, one of the world’s leading and fastest-growing producers of exclusively renewable energy announced that it has been awarded 81.6MWp in the call for tenders for ground-mounted solar farms held by the French government (CRE Innovation and CRE 4.9).

The 73.6MWp won in CRE 4.9 is split between five projects, from 3 to 39MWp, all following Neoen’s develop-to-own model.

Totalling 39MWp, Loirecopark, the ground-mounted solar park in the Sarthe département located on land belonging to a consortium of local authorities will be one of Neoen’s largest in France. When it opens in late 2022, the plant will produce enough green electricity to supply 26,000 people.

The four other winning projects are located in Haute-Vienne, Ain and Calvados, demonstrating Neoen’s ability to develop projects throughout France.

The commissioning of the assets will take place between the end of 2022 and the beginning of 2023.

Neoen has won 364.6MWp of solar power in the last nine CRE tenders, which represents a total investment of over €300m (£260m).
