The company explains that Guelph was chosen as the site for the facility, due to its Community Energy Initiative. "The community, as a whole, illustrates in many ways their commitment to sustainability," said City of Guelph’s Mayor, Karen Farbridge. "One great example is Guelph Hydro. In keeping with their desire to help build a sustainable community, they will be installing a 100 kW Canadian Solar Solution’s turnkey system on their facility’s rooftop. The system will be operational next year."
"Canadian Solar is proud to play a part in the success of the Green Energy Act, added Milfred Hammerbacher, President, Canadian Solar Solutions. "As a result of the forward thinking actions of the Liberal government and the City of Guelph, we are able to bring hundreds of jobs and more environmental sustainability in a very exciting time for renewable energy in Ontario."
