Two giant photovoltaic parks soon planned for Morbihan

Between 40,000 and 50,000 solar panels will be installed in Radenac and Pleugriffet, two rural towns in northern Morbihan, between Pontivy and Ploërmel, by 2020.

Engie Green plans to produce 17.5 MW of electricity, which equates to the electricity needs of 9,000 people. This project will occupy 20 hectares of an old sand pit.

At just thirty kilometers, the installation of 15,000 solar panels will begin in a month’s time, over eight hectares of old quarries. The Quadran company will produce 4.5 MW. The connection should be completed by the end of the year.

These two parks will soon make Morbihan the most advanced Breton department in this type of renewable energy.
