There are several types of solar energy: photovoltaics, passive and thermal. The Avignonet-Lauragais solar power site uses photovoltaic solar energy that converts photons from the sun into power through the physical properties of semiconductor materials. To harness this energy, we use solar panels made up of photovoltaic cells, electronic devices that convert the energy of light into electricity. The resulting power can be converted into alternating current and transmitted over the network or stored on a reserve battery. Currently, there is an estimated 100 GW of solar power installed globally. We are committed to refrain from site alterations and to restoring property to the same condition as when operations began.
This type of energy production has many positive environmental impacts:
