Ontario: SunEdison awarded 31 MW of PV contracts


SunEdison will reportedly finance, build, operate, monitor and maintain the systems, which will be located in communities throughout Ontario. They include: two 10 MW projects in Rideau Lakes; one 10 MW project in South Stormont; one 500 kilowatt (kW) project in Mississauga; and one 500 kW project in Whitby.

In total, the projects are expected to generate over 47 million kilowatt hours (kWh) of energy in their first year of operation, which should be enough to power more than 76,000 average homes. It is unclear however, when they are expected to be executed, or how much will be invested.

The company has already installed 28 MW of both ground-mounted and rooftop PV in the province.

Jason Gray, Canada country manager for SunEdison commented: "We believe that solar energy is a key component of the province's energy mix and that by working closely with government and business partners, we can create jobs, generate green power and ensure a sustainable renewable energy sector for Ontario."
