With the Montclar solar farm, Voltalia continues to innovate

With the Montclar solar farm,
The Montclar solar project is based on various innovations. An innovative metal structure, particularly adapted to the mountain context and to sites with steep slopes, will house low-carbon, high-performance solar modules. The project includes partnerships with several leading French scientific institutions such as the CEA, which will support
The Montclar project is an example of an innovative project on a steep slope. On the plains,
The solar panels follow the path of the sun to optimise agricultural production, and they can also be angled to allow light to pass through or to protect crops from extreme weather events (sunburn, hail, spring frost, etc.). Agrivoltaic projects also aim to reduce water requirements (reduced soil evapotranspiration) and irrigation costs by coupling the structure with an irrigation system.
To date, these are innovative projects with an experimental dimension, located on land dedicated to viticulture, arboriculture, market gardening and horticulture.

The AgriSOL projects also combine photovoltaic production with agricultural activity (mainly livestock, forage and cereal systems), but with solar panels positioned at the standard height for sheep farming, thus producing competitive energy.
The development of an AgriSOL solar power plant aims to integrate the agricultural dimension in a systemic approach. The solar power plant, located in an agricultural area, must be an integral part of the farm. Therefore, the agricultural dimension is integrated from the very first phases of the project development in order to adapt the design of the solar power plant to the existing production system.
