A new solar farm able to generate enough energy for 12,000 households has just come online in the south of France.

The Les Mées solar farm in the department of Alpes-de- Haute-Provence features six Siemens photovoltaic (PV) power plants with a combined peak output of 31 megawatts. The project developer is Delta Solar, a subsidiary of Eco Delta Développement (EDD).

Located at an elevation of 800 meters above sea level, the Les Mées solar farm is made up of 112,000 solar modules covering an area of 70 hectares. Siemens erected the six PV plants in only ten months.
