Dave Moerman, President of Silvercreek Solar Park Inc, commented,
This is our first project in Ontario and selecting Canadian Solar as our partner was an important decision. We are pleased with our decision. Canadian Solar is the largest solar manufacturer in Canada, known for manufacturing high performance solar modules. Both companies share in our commitment to the Ontario solar industry and are pleased to bring this showcase project online.
“We take the utmost pride and bring the same high level of expertise and quality to every solar project we are involved with. As a result, our impressive track record of success worldwide, expanding global leadership and strong local manufacturing facilities in Canada made Canadian Solar an ideal partner. We are excited to be working with Silvercreek Solar Park on its first solar project in Canada and look forward to further expanding our relationship in the future as opportunities become available,” commented Dr. Shawn Qu, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Canadian Solar Inc.
The Silvercreek solar farm will mark a milestone for the community, as Elgin County’s first solar farm to be built and connected in the county. The solar farm, which will cover approximately 88 acres of land, is expected to create more than 150 new jobs throughout the development and construction phase of the project.
Canadian Solar modules are covered by a 10-year warranty on materials and workmanship, along with a 25 year linear power output performance guarantee. In addition, Canadian Solar’s product and performance warranty are backed by a third-party insurance policy that is underwritten by investment grade insurance companies.
