The Agrinergie V solar farm is the third second-generation Agrinergie® solar farm to be installed on Réunion. It consists of 12 cyclone-proof photovoltaic greenhouses, covering a total area of 2.82 hectares. The agricultural partner for this project, Jean Bernard Gonthier, current Chairman of the local Chamber of Agriculture, uses this land for environmentally friendly production of fruit and vegetables for the local market. Thanks to the Agrinergie® greenhouses, the farm has been able to revitalize some of Reunion's heritage vegetables.

The structure of the solar greenhouses provides solid supports to the creepers that produce very heavy fruit and vegetables, one of the characteristics of the ancient varieties known as “lantana” in the local creole. These plants, which had all but disappeared, are thus given an ideal climate in which to grow, perpetuating a Réunion tradition.
