September 7 (SeeNews) - French Energy Minister Segolene Royal yesterday announced France will soon launch a series of tenders for rooftop solar power installations for a total capacity of 1,350 MW.

Each year between 2017 and 2019, France will tender 450 MW, in a move to help lift its solar capacity to between 18.2 GW and 20.2 GW by 2023 from 6.9 GW at end-June.

The announcement comes just two weeks after France said it will tender 3 GW of ground-mounted installations.
