FLASH : Belvezet solar park conception

The Belvézet photovoltaic park, located in the Gard department in France, was designed and developed by Altergie. Located on municipal land, it offers a total power of 31 MWc, including :

  • for the phase I : a total power of 20.2MWp with 78 700 solar panels installed over 32 ha with a production exceeding 29 GWh of electricity per year, equivalent to the annual electricity consumption of 20 000 people.
  • for the phase II : a total power of 11 MWp with 40 700 solar panels installed over 20 ha with a production of 18 GWh of electricity per year, equivalent to the annual electricity consumption of 12 000 people.

This project is the result of extensive cooperation initiated in 2010 between the Belvezet municipality, the French state representatives in the Gard Department and Altergie, and integrates an exemplary sustainable development component.

The idea first arose within the Belvezet municipality. Owner of a large private estate, they expressed a strong desire to include a solar project into their global environmental strategy and created a protected biodiversity area of almost 600 ha (1500 acres).

They defined a biodiversity development plan that includes the management of open spaces and restoration of agro-pastroralism (for raising sheep). A land grazing agreement on 75 ha was established with a local farmer in order to ensure the plant site and its surroundings respected the soils and biodiversity.

Extensive naturalistic studies were conducted before the solar park was built and its recommendations continue to be adhered to during the operation of the plants.

Beyond the capacity of the Belvezet photovoltaic park to provide local clean energy, this achievement illustrates the commitment of the various stakeholders to associate renewable energies with large scale actions performed in favor of biodiversity and local economical development.
