GreenYellow developed, built and operated 115 solar plants on rooftops and parking lots, on sites belonging to the Casino Group as well as to various owners (industrial companies, local communities, retailers …), both in France and abroad. As such, GreenYellow built the largest Colombian solar plant on the rooftop of the Exito Panorama store in Baranquilla. Its 6,300 m² of solar panels produce 780 MWh per year, which represents 24% of site electricity consumption.
