Atlantic Wind & Solar Inc. says its Canadian affiliate, Hybridyne Power Systems Canada Inc. (HPSC), has sold and will be installing a 2 MW ground-mounted photovoltaic energy park, which will be located approximately 80 km east of Toronto in Brownsville, on the outskirts of Newcastle, Ontario.
The project has been in development by Hybridyne since January 2007. It was one of the first projects contemplated by any renewable energy asset developer in Ontario, and was readily accepted by the local community.
The 10-acre solar energy park will represent over 90% Canadian content, and over 50% Ontario content, as well incorporate 8,900 Day4 Energy Canadian PV panels and eight of Hybridyne's HPE Hyper-Watt 250 XLS (Ontario) inverters. This array will efficiently capture and deliver enough clean energy to power more than 360 homes each year, according to the company.
Construction on the project is expected to begin in the second quarter of 2010 and be completed by late 2010.
