The day has come! The inauguration of the Marcoussis solar farm was held on 4 October, and was attended by Barbara Pompili, Minister of the Ecological Transition, and Catherine MacGregor, CEO of ENGIE. The solar power plant is installed on a former wasteland made up of embankments and is equipped with nearly 60,000 solar panels, making it the largest plant of its kind north of the Loire. ENGIE Green was chosen at the end of 2017 by the Marcoussis commune and SIGEIF (energy syndicate in Île-de-France) to carry out this remarkable project. With a total capacity of 20.3 MWp, it allows to produce some 21,629 MWh each year, i.e. the domestic consumption of 10,000 people.
