10,000 MW of wind power connected to the grid in France

September 2015, in France

In the run-up to the Paris Climate Conference (COP 21) in December 2015, the French wind fleet has reached the mark of 10,000 MW connected to the grid. These facilities enable to cover the domestic electricity needs of a little more than 6 million households, said the French Renewable Energy Industries Association in a press release.

The aim of France is to reach 19,000 MW of installed onshore wind farms by 2020.
