Canada sees first dedicated solar EPC company established

According to the company, the deal will help to meet the needs of the growing Ontario market. While it is a building envelope trade contractor, RESCo is focused on delivering commercial solar roof-top projects.

“The Ontario solar industry has been lacking an experienced engineering and construction firm that can underwrite the delivery risk of designing and building its solar arrays”, commented Fidel Reijerse, president of RESCo Energy. “Flynn brings the balance sheet and bonding required for us to provide the industry with the confidence it needs to construct projects that have been awarded under Ontario’s feed-in tariff program.”

“As roofing specialists, the opportunity to deliver on this market takes natural advantage of the relationships, scale, and vision of the Flynn team,” added John McManus, Flynn’s COO. “What we saw in RESCo was a company that shared the confidence of our clients, had a proven track record in delivering quality solar projects, and aligned with our quality and safety standards.”
