Phoenix Solar is expecting the French solar market to become important to its revenue stream in coming years. Having recently established a France-based operation, Phoenix Solar has secured a contract with E.ON Climate & Renewables GmbH to plan and build a solar power plant with a capacity of 1.5MW in Le Lauzet in the Alpes-de-Haute-Provence region on a southern alpine slope at an altitude of 1,000 m.
The project will use crystalline solar modules with construction to start at the end of October and connected to the grid before year-end.
“We are very pleased to be building our first megawatt project in France for E.ON Climate & Renewables. This is an opportunity for us to demonstrate our expertise and our long-standing experience in building solar farms in the megawatt range also in this market, which is new to Phoenix Solar”, commented Dr Andreas Hänel, CEO of Phoenix Solar AG.
