DuPont has brought into service a 4.5MW solar PV plant at its facility in Cernay, France, and is expected to generate 5 million kWh of electricity per year.

The Jinko Solar panels feature advanced materials from DuPont designed to improve the power output, durability and return on investment for solar energy systems.

The panels are made with DuPont Tedlar polyvinyl fluoride film-based backsheets, which are designed to protect solar panels for more than 30 years even in extreme outdoor conditions, and DuPont Solarmet PV metallization pastes that help ensure maximum power output.

The company’s deployment of solar power continues to expand, consistent with its aim to address the growing global demand for energy while reducing dependence on fossil fuels.

The project was developed by Hanau Energies, a French project developer and investor in solar installations, and was built in a record time of two months. It falls under a 20-year power purchase agreement with energy provider Electricite Reseau Distribution France.
