Total Solar designs, builds and services ground-mounted photovoltaic power stations around the world. Here are a few examples.
Over 80,000 solar panels covering a 25-hectare brownfield and powering 9,000 homes. The country has been diversifying its energy mix since the accident at Fukushima and is gravitating towards photovoltaic technology, which should account for 7% of Japan’s capacity by 2030.
Prieska, South Africa
The Total group has built and is operating one of the continent’s largest photovoltaic farms through its affiliate SunPower. This plant started up in March 2016 and is now supplying almost 75,000 South African homes with clean and sustainable electricity, while diversifying the energy mix in a country with enormous solar potential.
PV Salvador, Chile
Total has built and is operating one of the world’s largest merchant solar power plants in the middle of the Atacama Desert. PV Salvador has been selling electricity to the Chilean grid since 2015. The area’s abundant sunlight and low construction costs enable this power station to sell its electricity at market prices.
La Mède, France
Some 18,000 Oasis® 3 panels from SunPower cover the 12-hectare field by this former refinery (now a biorefinery). This farm produces enough electricity to power a town with a population of 13,000.
