This project plans the construction of a photovoltaic power plant, set up on the car park of the CACEM (Urban authorities of the center of Martinique ) headquarters to power a facility to recharge electric vehicles as well as part of the building. This facility will consist of 3 elements:

-          A 230-square-metre shaded canopy-like structure, covering 12 parking spaces,

-          A 36 KVA photovoltaic power plant,

-          4 double recharging stations which can power 8 vehicles at the same time.

The facility will be controlled by a set of digital tools that will monitor, control and optimize the performance of the photovoltaic production connected to the electricity network, while guaranteeing the safe functioning of the structure. This project is a public partnership with ADEME.
