The ceremony was attended by Didier Bonneaud, Mayor of Saint-Etienne-des-Sorts, key project partners, including the EPC contractor Metka EGN, leaders from the renewable energy sector and community representatives.
Bonneaud said, "Our municipality has been supportive of this project from the very beginning and we are delighted to see that Sonnedix has overcome all the specifies related to the site."
Construction on the solar plant began in late 2018 and was completed, ahead of time and budget, in March 2019 and grid connected in June 2019. Sonnedix's operating capacity in France has reached 252MWp following a string of acquisitions over the last 12 months.
Jean-Philippe Fau, Representative Director for Sonnedix France concluded, "This ceremony is an opportunity to thank all parties involved for their support in bringing the solar plant to completion, as we continue to expand our controlled capacity in France through the development, construction and acquisition of solar plants for the long term."
