Interview with Stephanie Facon-Retaux, a grower in Berre l’Etang (French Department 13), just outside Marseilles
Stephanie Facon-Retaux and her husband run a market garden and horticulture business in the town of Berre l’Etang, near Marseilles. They grow flowers and fruit both outside and in their greenhouses.
«We started this solar-powered greenhouse project with Urbasolar so we could replace our 2 ancient sets of greenhouses.
The whole project development took around 2 years. Our partnership with Urbasolar was based on trust, conversations and a search for solutions which suited our business needs as growers.
This solar-powered greenhouse offers us the kind of air, height and light inside our production facility that we’ve never seen before!
Now, we are producing strawberries and raspberries in there. Our staff are very happy with the working conditions which are much more comfortable than in the old greenhouses.
This first project with Urbasolar has really got us thinking about new ventures«.
