Solar energy

VALOREM has been developing and operating land-based solar farms for nearly 10 years. We encourage the development of photovoltaic farms in non-agricultural areas, where land use can be supplemented by growing crops or raising livestock.

Projects that create value for the host localities

Development of a solar project must also be an opportunity for local economic and social development. Since 2017, each of our solar projects has established partnership agreements with network facilitators Alliance Ville-Emploi  Departments, PLIE [Local Plan for Integration and Employment], Association, Employment Agencies, etc.) to identify potentially interested workers located as close as possible to the construction site. The companies working on the sites must sign a binding commitment to adhere to the inclusion clauses, as required by VALOREM. The purpose of this contract performance condition is to set aside a percentage of the total hours of work for the unemployed: recipients of inclusion income support and minimum social benefits, long-term job seekers, those who are under 26 years of age or classified as workers with disabilities.

VALOREM and its subsidiary VALREA, experts in the construction of RE parks, have pledged that their subcontractors will set aside a quota of working hours for people who are not in employment.

“Thanks to the companies that took part, the inclusion clauses introduced by the Department were a success and can serve as an example not only to other companies, but also to all the departments.”
