The solar panels as well as the electrical accessories are secured on the roof of the Ciné Triomphe. The photovoltaic component consists of 336 modules of 305 W each, providing a total power of 102.5 kW. This will reduce the carbon footprint on the environment by about 120 tonnes per year.
The solar panels are coupled with the latest-generation lithium-ion Intensium® Max 20E containerized energy storage system. This installation will store the energy captured by the solar panels during the periods of sunshine to feed the entire Champ-de-Mars day and night. The autonomy offered by this assembly is estimated at 38h.
