The Ruffec Landfill Facility was operational from 1978 to 2005. Following site closure, and in accordance with regulations, its owner Calitom completed the redevelopment of the site with a view to its post-exploitation monitoring for 30 years (collection and management of biogas, leachate and rainwater). In parallel with the rehabilitation, Calitom wanted to enhance the site through the production of photovoltaic electricity. The Ruffec photovoltaic plant will be a solar park on the ground on "trackers", a mobile system that allows solar panels to follow the course of the sun and optimize electricity production. The total power of the park will be 2.8 MWp for 1.8 ha of solar panels (of the 5 ha adapted to the installation of the plant). This photovoltaic plant will produce 3,640,000 kWh per year, equivalent to the consumption of about 1,300 households or 360 world tour in electric car.
