TDF commissions its first solar farm in Corsica

tdfTDF announces this Monday the commissioning of its very first solar farm installed on its Coti-Chiavari site in Southern Corsica. In total, 154 photovoltaic panels are installed at the foot of the site to supply it with green energy.

Digital players are increasing their efforts to reduce their impact on the environment. They are adopting different strategies for this: Orange will rely on AI for this while Bouygues Telecom encourages reconditioned with Back Market.

And today, TDF unveils a new initiative in favor of the environment and announces the commissioning of its first solar farm. This is installed on its Coti-Chiavari site in Southern Corsica and allows the self-production of part of the electricity necessary for the operation of the site.

More than 14 tonnes of CO2 saved per year

This solar farm, which is the first in the group, is made up of 154 photovoltaic panels for a power of 65kWp (kilowatt-peak with 1 kWp which corresponds to 1000 watts).

This new equipment will allow TDF to significantly reduce its carbon footprint, by more than 14 tonnes of CO2 per year according to the group. In any case, it clearly modernizes this site built in the 1960s and 133 meters high which allows the broadcasting of FM radio and TNT for the inhabitants of the Ajaccio region. It also hosts the telecom equipment and antennas of mobile telephone operators, in particular 4G and 5G coverage.

But TDF won’t stop there. In his press release published today, he indicates that “ several other projects of this type are planned in 2024 » including the installation of solar farms on some of its land, each capable of producing between 200 MWh and 330 MWh per year.

We are very proud to announce the commissioning of this first solar farm in Coti-Chiavari. This achievement is an important step in achieving our ambition to reduce our carbon footprint. Optimizing our energy consumption and implementing new sources of supply are among our priorities to meet our challenges as an eco-responsible towerco. More than ever, the environmental emergency and the context of energy crisis that we are facing must lead industrial players, like TDF, to rethink their needs and their energy consumption.
