TotalEnergies commissions company’s largest solar project in France

TotalEnergies has commissioned its largest solar project in France, the 55MW Gien site in Lorient.

The hometown developer said the project comprises 126,000 photovoltaic panels spread over 75 hectares.

The plant (pictured) will produce around 64 GWh per year, equivalent to the annual electricity consumption of 38,000 people.

It was financed partly using a participative financing scheme involving site neighbours.

TotalEnergies teams will operate and maintain the plant locally throughout its 30-year operating lifespan. 

Country boss Thierry Muller said: “TotalEnergies once again confirms its commitment to the development of renewable energies in partnership with the regions. I would like to thank all of the project stakeholders who helped develop our largest solar farm in France.
