FRANCE. On Tuesday 8 September 2020, Tenergie finalised the purchase of seven rooftop photovoltaic power plants from the Danish fund Green Power Partners. With a total installed capacity of 9 MWp, they are all located in south-eastern France* and were commissioned in 2012.

The French independent producer of renewable energies will now operate them, monitor production, service and maintenance and optimise them.

"For more than ten years, we have been carrying a message: let's transform the French energy landscape by developing together clean and competitive energy sources, close to consumers. In ten years, solar energy has been able to develop to be competitive thanks to economies of scale. The result is there, solar energy is today the cheapest energy without question, the most virtuous, and in short circuit. It generates local employment and income for communities. Our mission is to bring this message to regional players, communities and consumers. The solar industry has changed, it is now necessary to accelerate its development, for mankind and for the planet", comments Philippe Rochet, member of the executive committee of Tenergie, in a press release. 

With this acquisition, Tenergie now owns 950 power plants in France with a capacity of 560 MW. Created in 2008, the Provencal company (based in Meyreuil near Aix-en-Provence) has a turnover of €202 million in 2019 and employs one hundred people.
