French solar power generation capacity increased nearly twice a year

France comprehensive committee 1, sustainable development, according to data released by the French solar energy generating capacity in June 2011 year almost doubled. At the same time, total installed capacity of wind power increased by only about 14%.
According to statistics, in the first half of 2011 the French new solar power unit 207000, new installed capacity of 599 megawatts (mw). By June 2011, the French solar power of the total installed capacity of 1679 megawatts (mw), a June 2010 to 580 mw of almost doubled.
Sustainable development commission said France comprehensive of wind power growth slowed, but with a total installed capacity of 6253 megawatts (mw) and has already reached is solar power, wind power of nearly four times in the French electricity consumption in proportion also rose to 2.2% by the end of June.
