A French farmer has installed the second largest solar power plant at his chicken farm in Bretagne. The commissioned solar plant has a capacity of 205kW, ordered from French system supplier Solar Diffusion.
Integrated on the farm’s two chicken-stall roofs are over a thousand solar modules, by installing the panels as BIPV the farmer will gain the highest FiT rate of €0.60/kWh.
Founding the company Solar Production Lassay, in partnership with Solar Diffusion, financed the project. “For investments of roughly 100,000 euros and more it is more attractive in France for farmers to operate their solar power plants as corporate entities,” explained Michel Milhavet a Solar Diffusion employee.
