The $2 million commercial rooftop installation, consisting of 1,488 panels, is expected to produce 7,900 megawatt hours of power over the next 20 years supplying Ontario with clean reliable energy. The power will be sold under the province’s Feed-In-Tariff program.
Upon construction completion inspections by the grid operator and power purchaser were completed. Following receipt of the notice of Commercial Operation from Ontario’s IESO (Independent Electricity System Operator, formerly known as Ontario Power Authority) the power plant went into commercial operation.
Commenting on the project completion Atlantic Wind & Solar’s President & CEO John Wilkes stated: “We are delighted to see another Atlantic project brought on line and now powering the grid. Bringing a greenfield development idea to its final completion and commercial operation is something for which our team is very proud. Atlantic has been making a tremendous contribution in the transformation to a clean sustainable future. We are determined to continue building upon our successes to meet the ever increasing demand for renewable energy.”
The solar power plant was developed by Atlantic Wind and Solar Inc.’s Canadian subsidiary, Atlantic Solar Inc.
