Canadian Solar to start production at 200 MW solar panel factory early next year

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."
