La Rochelle solarizes its port area
This photovoltaic achievement is part of the solarization project of the roof of the submarine base of the Atlantic Port of La Rochelle and was initiated in 2014. It started with this installation of 7 photovoltaic roofs. They were put into service in 2016 on hangars. The Port thus constitutes a real source of energy with sustainable development for self-consumption in adjacent cities.
