Midi, 12 MW, is one out of the 2 power plants part of the Verrerie PV farm, 24 MW, the largest solar plant in the Var region and amongst the largest in the whole of France. It is unusual in that it is linked directly to the very high voltage grid, at 225,000 volts, instead of the more common 20,000-volt connection used for French solar farms. This innovation created significant technical challenges for the Akuo Energy teams, including the need to develop a system to regulate energy flows, in order to ensure grid stability.

In addition, as part of its constant commitment to the protection of the environment, a bee meadow has been planted between the solar panels in order to provide natural sources of food for bees. This land has also been made available to a local sheep farmer for grazing his flock.
