Boralex has signed a three-year contract with Auchan Retail France to purchase electricity for the production of wind farms in the Hauts-de-France region. The French developer will supply Auchan Retail with the energy produced in two solar installations with a total generating capacity of 61 MW in the south of the country, as part of a 20-year power purchase contract (AAE) signed by the energy consumer. The contract concludes with agreements for a 5 MW solar production capacity with Boulanger, a 150 MW contract with the railways and a 10 MW agreement with the lender Credit Mutuel with these three 25-year PPPs. “This agreement with Auchan Retail France, a world-renowned distributor, helps us get closer to this goal,” Wolff added. He added: “The company continues to receive additional interest in its coal-derived collection and we remain optimistic that profitability could be further increased in due course.” The agreement is Voltalia`s fourth power purchase agreement in his country. French distributor Auchan will buy the electricity under a 20-year contract. Contango, which plans to lease a sponsor to extract coal from Lubu, said it intended the kidnapping with South Mining would offer it a “significant cash flow.” Multinational distributor Auchan has also signed agreements with Boralex and Eurowatt for the expansion of the production of two wind farms of 13 wind turbines in the Hauts-de-France and the Loire Valley. If these facilities are no longer incentivized by the government, they will continue to produce for the energy consumer until December 2023. “Our Energy Markets Directorate, created in 2019, has set itself the goal of deploying private air opening contracts for industrial and commercial customers in the French market. Auchan Retail plans to buy 16% of its electricity from clean electricity in 2022, up from 100% by 2030. Your email address will not be published.

Construction of the two facilities, which are expected to produce 97 GWh per year for Auchan, is expected to begin next year with commissioning in 2022.
In 2001, Boralex founded its French headquarters in Blendecques, Pas-de-Calais, and today, with a team of 70 people, manages more than 400 MW throughout the region. “Auchan advocates a proactive approach to reducing electricity consumption, which has fallen by 18% in France since 2014,” Voltalia said. “Helexia, a subsidiary of Voltalia, contributed to this strategy through an energy management contract with several sites.” The company, which was already launched in 2017 under the title of Cash Shell, completed the reverse acquisition of Lubu in June. Contango Holdings PLC (LON:CGO) has reached an outboard agreement for its lubu coal basin project in Zimbabwe. The agreement marks Voltalia`s fourth AAE without a grant in France.

They will also supply retail outlets and warehouses directly to Retail Frances in northern France, including the Mers-les-Bains shopping centre, less than 20 km from wind farms. Sébastien Clerc, CEO of the developer, said: “This partnership is yet another example of our leadership in the production of competitive renewable energy through corporate PPAs in the French market. We are pleased to work with Auchan Retail, building on the collaboration with our subsidiary Helexia in the areas of self-production and energy management. The company is hopeful of concluding the agreement and starting to build mines, as travel and work restrictions throughout Zimbabwe are fading “This long-standing contract between two Companies in the Hauts de France is proof that we can bring production closer to consumption, so that the green energy produced by our farms is used every day by the Fra
