20MW Amherstburg solar park completed


The park commenced commercial operations on June 30 this year and is said to be one of the biggest solar installations in Canada. It is expected to produce enough electricity annually to power approximately 4,000 homes according to Toronto based Capstone (Macquarie Power & Infrastructure Income Fund is now part of Capstone). The park holds 57,906 solar panels mounted on 6,434 trackers. It was designed and built by SunPower. 100 jobs were created during the construction process of the solar park.

"The completion of the Amherstburg Solar Park marks an important milestone for Capstone Infrastructure as our first development project and our first solar power facility," said Michael Bernstein, president and chief executive officer, Capstone Infrastructure Corporation. "We are proud of the quality of the Amherstburg Solar Park and the contribution it will make to renewable energy in the Province of Ontario. We are also delighted to be part of the local community."

The project was taken on by SunPower three years ago and was the biggest to be developed by SunPower. While Capstone owns the solar park, it leases the property from Amherstburg businessman Loris Collavino, who bought the two plots of land from General Chemical.
