Agricultural sheds, wine cellars, greenhouses, etc.
Agriculture and viticulture
Farms often need many hectares of land for large buildings needed to accommodate the agricultural equipment, which has become bigger and more sophisticated from a technical and technological point of view. Moreover, the European agricultural regulation is increasingly demanding and it is often required to perform renovation works or to build new constructions in order to remain compliant with applicable law.
The revenues farmers obtain by selling the produced photovoltaic electricity from the roof mounted installation, or by the rent for the occupancy of the roof represent an additional mean to develop and sustain their agricultural business.
GÉNÉRALE DU SOLAIRE offers its services and expertise for all types of agricultural buildings:
- Photovoltaic greenhouses;
- Storage sheds;
- Equestrian riding schools;
- Poultry farms;
- Stabling, etc.
The wine making process creates problems with moisture and dirt, which means wine cellars have to renovate the roofs of their buildings every few years. Roof mounted photovoltaic plants can be a profitable solution for wine cellars, because it would allow them to renovate their roofs and obtain a guaranteed maintenance for the duration of the power purchase contract (minimum of 20 years in France).
The following French wine growers have already placed their trust in GÉNÉRALE DU SOLAIRE: Pic Saint Lou, Château Margaux, Domaine Puech, Saint Cécile Les Vignes, Cavaillon etc.
