115-MW Solar Power Project (+ 5 More Large Solar Power Projects)

Marguerite Fund acquires 36 MW of ginormous, 115-MW Toul-Rosières solar power project. This 115-MW solar power plant, if built today, would be the world’s largest solar PV project (scroll down to the bottom of that page to see the current list of the the world’s largest). It is a project of EDF Energies Nouvelles. “Located in a former air base owned by the French State and covering a total area of 522 hectares it is situated near the city of Nancy, in the north-east of France,” The Marguerite Fund wrote yesterday , when announcing its new stake in the project. “One and a half million panels using First Solar’s thin film technology will be installed for the project which is expected to start generating electricity in the third quarter of this year.”
