May 31 (Renewables Now) - EDF Renewables will supply French mobile phone operator Bouygues Telecom with electricity from six wind farms in France under a three-year power off-take deal.

The power purchase agreement (PPA) will see Bouygues Telecom get 203 GWh of clean power from EDF’s wind parks between 2022 and 2024. The contracted output will cover more than 10% of the telecommunications company’s power demand by the end of the deal, it said on Friday.

The renewables arm of French utility EDF Group noted that the PPA guarantees the extension of operations at the wind farms. The particular plants are located in the departments of Meuse, Moselle, Manche, Ille-et-Vilaine and Herault.

The power supplies will be facilitated by Agregio, an EDF group subsidiary dedicated to the aggregation of renewable energy production.

Early this year, Bouygues Telecom set a goal of using 100% renewable electricity supply certified by guarantees of origin.
