Opened in 2010, Marie-Galante was the first ground-based solar and Agrinergie® project to be developed in the Antilles by Akuo Energy. Solar energy and beekeeping share the site thanks to the planting of bee meadows.

Since early 2015, the site has also welcomed a flock of sheep, which benefits from this enclosed supervised land whilst providing natural maintenance and minimizing the use of mechanical tools.
