What advantages are there in renting out your land?

Individuals

Benefit from a secure long-term rent (30-40 years) by installing a solar farm on your land.

Photosol takes care of everything: red tape and finances.

No investment (in time or money) required.

Companies

Modernise your image whilst collecting rent money: advertise your contribution to the energy transition

Anticipate by hosting a power station that meets your electrical needs.

Public entities

Give your territory a dynamic image by contributing to the energy transition.

Thanks to the rent and extra income in local taxes, the project will benefit your inhabitants as well as contribute to the funding of public services and territorial improvements.

Your project, step by step

Our business development team will take care of locating and renting or buying land susceptible of hosting a utility-scale photovoltaic power station (land, car parks, extensive roofing).

All the surveys and administrative procedures required for project completion are delt with by our development team who also takes care of relationships with landowners and the authorities. Meanwhile, our engineers start their investigations to find the best site possible.

All expenses are borne by PHOTOSOL.

All PV energy producers have to submit to a “call for tender” process organised by the State. The most competitive projects are those with the lowest electricity selling price and the best carbon footprint.

All the investments required for the power stations are secured by PHOTOSOL, by means of individual fundraising and long-term bank loans.

The PHOTOSOL team of engineers supervises the construction of the power station, from design to operation. They are also constantly in touch with the owner.

Once they are operational, our PV power stations are maintained by PHOTOM, our partner dedicated to operation and maintenance whose offices are located in France, in the departments of Gironde and Allier.

The dismantling of the PV power station on discontinuation of operations and the rehabilitation of the land are provided for right from the beginning, during the impact study required to obtain building permission. Dismantling is also covered in all rental agreements.

The purchase of panels automatically gives rise to the payment of an eco-participation to PV CYCLE, a company approved by the French public authorities for the processing and recycling of old photovoltaic panels. Nowadays, over 90% of photovoltaic power stations are recyclable.

Commitment

When we commit ourselves, we put all our energy into achieving your project. Our rents are calibrated to provide owners with the best remuneration whilst preserving competitiveness in the calls for tender of the Regional Environmental Centre. We absolutely refuse to make promises that we could not keep.

Experience

With a currently operational capacity of 250 MWp, we are among the first photovoltaic energy producers in France. We cope with all sorts of lands, no matter how difficult (slopes, former dump sites, …).

Competitiveness

With its strong control over the construction and operational costs of its plants, Photosol has always targeted the cheapest energy production. The success rate of our applications to the calls for tender of the CRE (French commission for the regulation of energy) is high and we are currently designing energy resale solutions that do not require public support.
