Sainte-Marguerite is the second second-generation ground-based solar farm with an Agrinergie® component built by Akuo Energy in Guadeloupe. It began production in 2011 and is located in the village of Moule, on a site known as Sainte Marguerite on Grande Terre island. Not all of the total area has been used by the solar farm, with flat land of 2ha made available to Mr. Noirault, a local tomato grower, to allow him to expand and give him access to land, which can be difficult obtain in this area.

The 3ha plot occupied by the solar farm is also available to Mr. Tangamen, a local farmer, for grazing his sheep in an enclosed, secure area. Access to this land has enabled him to expand his operations. This flock provides natural maintenance of the site, without recourse to machinery. Supporting these agricultural businesses is all the more important in Guadeloupe, given that local food production covers only a limited share of its domestic demand.
