Helexia, a subsidiary of Voltalia (Euronext Paris, ISIN code: FR0011995588) and an international player in the energy transition, announces the launch of the construction of 3 out of a total of 20 solar rooftops for Auchan in Hungary, representing a total capacity of 25.1 megawatts.  

Helexia is responsible for the development, construction, financing and commissioning of solar power plants on the rooftops of these stores. This self-consumption project involves 20 locations throughout Hungary.

The solar panels of the first three stores have been installed. The remaining 17 sites will be built gradually by the end of 2022 and during 2023.

The 20 photovoltaic rooftops will produce more than 25.6 gigawatt hours annually and cover the annual electricity consumption of 20,000 inhabitants, which is the consumption of a Hungarian city like Várpalota. It will avoid the emission of more than 4,730 tons of CO2 per year.
