Montpellier-based solar power developer Urbasolar said it placed 11 out of the 33 wining bids at France's solar power plus storage tender for overseas departments and territories.
The 11 projects have a combined capacity of 10.03 MWp of photovoltaic (PV) power plus storage. Ten of the PV installations will be building-integrated and one will cover a parking canopy with solar panels.
The total investment is valued at EUR 30 million (USD 33.8m).
Six of the solar power plants will be built in Reunion, three in Martinique and two in Guadeloupe.
A twelfth project of Urbasolar, for a parking canopy in Reunion, has been put on "additional list", along with five other projects.
Urbasolar has been active in French overseas departments and territories since 2008 and has so far built 33 PV projects there.
