PV power plant Aurillac Fraisse

The Fraisse plant has a peak capacity of 99 kilowatts peak (kWp). It is connected to the local 20 kV medium-voltage grid belonging to French electricity supplier ERDF with highly efficient Power One inverters. The grid connection point is close to the photovoltaic park, which was installed on what was previously unused land. Easements ensure that the cables required for connection can be laid over third-party property. We have also secured all other rights and authorisation to build power plants, such as planning permission and leases for the land.

Installed modules

The photovoltaic modules used in the plant are supplied by the company BenQ Solar. Manufactured to the highest quality standards, they have a nominal power of 240 Wp (watts peak) per module.

Power plant operation

Operation specialists ENcome Energy Performance are responsible for organising and running the power plant. In order to keep a constant check on the photovoltaic power plant, we installed a 24/7 monitoring system which sends all the plant’s performance parameters online to the control station in Klagenfurt. This enables the operator to detect even the slightest deviation and take the necessary corrective action immediately.
