Continuing its drive to commission its major solar projects in France, EDF Energies Nouvelles announces the commissioning of Toul-Rosières solar power plant in the Lorraine region of eastern France, with an installed capacity of 115 MW.

Located close to Nancy in the Meurthe-et-Moselle department of eastern France, the Toul-Rosières photovoltaic plant is a trail-blazing project supported by local officials and community, which made local jobs and the highest environmental standards its top priorities. This large-scale plant is equipped with around 1.4 million next-generation “thin-film” photovoltaic panels manufactured by First Solar. The power generated at this plant will be equivalent to the annual electricity consumption of some 55,000 people and eliminate approximately 4,600 tonnes of CO2 emissions.

Initiated in 2009, the power plant project was developed and built by EDF EN France and has been commissioned gradually since May 2012. Operations and maintenance are managed by EDF EN Services, a subsidiary of EDF Energies Nouvelles.
