The Toul-Rosières Solar Park is a 115 megawatt (MW) solar farm located at the Toul-Rosières Air Base, in France. It is the largest solar power station using photovoltaic technology in France. The project is developed by EDF Énergies Nouvelles (EDF EN).

The solar park has about 1.4 million thin-film PV panels based on CdTe technology made by the US company First Solar.[1] It covers area of 367 hectares (910 acres).

In 2012, the Luxembourg-based Marguerite Fund acquired 36 MW stake in the solar park.[2] 24 MW stake was sold to the independent power producer Sonnedix.[3]
