Solar farm, France
The economic crises and the need for green energy have brought two French farmers to make a step; they converted their farm from making cheese, wine and eggs into solar energy producers.
“We have such big area and we can not make a living from farming anymore” one of them is saying. “If we can earn money and produce green energy all together, that’s great solution”. The huge solar plant will work on the thin films technology. Sun light hits the thin film photovoltaic solar panels and produced electricity.
The huge investment is covered by some French banks and the technology is provided by American thin films company. This farm alone will become 10% of all solar production in France after it will be ready and active, the save for the environment and the save in terms of pollution is great.
The French solar plant will prevent the emission of 2,750 tones’ of CO2 every single year. More than 4,000 houses in the area will enjoy clean energy. Major plan is to large this plant until 2012 to be able to produce up to 500 Mega Watts
The investors will benefit, the farmers will benefit, the environment benefits and the users benefits. It’s a win-win-win-win situation for all.
