tons of CO2 avoided per year
This photovoltaic carport project cover the Jonquières Sunday market and the parking nearby which represents a total are of 47 500 m2.
This structure allows the inhabitants to park their vehicles and be sheltered from the sun and bad weather. 3.9 megawatts, 8,940 modules and 978 tons of CO2 avoided each year are the main key figures of this solar plant which production corresponds to the consumption of around 5,000 people. It is Voltalia’s fifth power plant in operation in Provence Alpes-Côte d'Azur.
Solar shelters are compatible with various types of activities such as the industry, farming or as in the present case, commercial activities. They contribute to enhancing land value and also have, in the long term, a role to play in the acceleration of electric mobility as they are designed to accommodate fast-charging stations.
