Environment chief Ségolène Royal unveiled the 1km (0.6 mile) stretch covered with 2,880 solar panels in Tourouvre-au-Perche which is designed to power street lights for 3,400 villagers.

It cost €5 million (£4.2 million) to construct with bosses claiming it will produce 280 megawatt hours of power annually. Daily production will vary depending on the weather.
