Located close to Chartres, in the French department of Eure-et-Loir, the Crucey solar photovoltaic plant is equipped with around 741,150 next-generation “thin-film” photovoltaic panels, manufactured by First Solar. This innovative project also sees the redevelopment of disused and polluted land on a former NATO air base into. The solar power plant generates electricity equivalent to that consumed by of around 28,000 people, and adequates to around 4,600 fewer tonnes of CO2 emitted per year.
