Beautiful French Plateau Will Be Home to 100 MW of Solar Power By End of Year

On the lovely Puimichel plateau in Les Mées, France, two solar farms that are currently generating 18.2 MW are expanding into a much larger solar park capable of generating about 100 MW by the end of the year.

The solar arrays take up 89 acres, but will end up covering 200 hectares.  This is the largest solar farm project so far by the builder, Belgium-based Enfinity, and will be the largest solar array in France.

What makes it unique is the way the arrays are being built without the cialis femele use of the best choice order viagra online concrete foundations so the local sheep can still graze in the area.  This design is not only friendly to the sheep, but makes for a strikingly beautiful appearance as well (see a great photo here).

sheep grazing?

that is very nice. but i just wonder, when the panels cover that much, how is the grass supposed to grow? it needs sunlight, too, after all!
but i like the design in general, let's hope they got it all figured out properly.

I agree that this design is very beautiful but i think it'll present serious issues concerning the power production which is obviously the main goal of the project.
The PV panels are not installed in a standard angle to the sun since they follow the terrain, resulting uneven power production from each PV panel. I'm not saying it won't work at all but it won't work at its maximum capabilities.
