EDF Energies Nouvelles, the renewable energy unit of France’s EDF SA (EDF), completed Europe’s largest photovoltaic plant in the northeast of the country.
The developer opened the 115-megawatt Toul-Rosieres project at a former military air base near Nancy using about 1.4 million thin-film solar panels from U.S. manufacturer First Solar Inc. (FSLR:US), EDF said in a statement today. The project started in 2009 and has been commissioned in stages since May, it said.
