October 9 (Renewables Now) - EDF Renewables, part of power utility Electricite de France SA (EPA:EDF), has commissioned the 22-MW Pays d’Anglure onshore wind farm in the French north-eastern department of Marne.

The new wind farm is equipped with six turbines installed across the communes of Allemanche-Launay-et-Soyer and La Chapelle-Lasson. It will produce enough power to meet the annual demand of 26,000 people, equal to nearly 5% of Marne’s population, the French renewable energy company said.

Under EDF Group’s Cap 2030 strategy, the company aims to double its domestic and global renewable energy capacity to a combined total of 50 GW net by 2030.

In France, the Pays d’Anglure wind farm joins a 1.9-GW portfolio of gross wind and solar installed capacity.
