EDF EN Canada Inc., an EDF Energies Nouvelles company, has commenced construction on three solar photovoltaic projects totaling 36 MW.
The Elmsley Solar Project, located near Lombardy in the Township of Rideau Lakes, comprises two 12 MW sites utilizing Suntech panels. The 12 MW St. Isidore Project is located near the town of St. Isidore in the Municipality of the Nation and will consist of First Solar panels.
All three sites are being developed under the government of Ontario's Renewable Energy Standard Offer Program, which encourages renewable energy production to help replace coal-fired generation. The projects will deliver local electricity service via connections to the Hydro One distribution grid, expected by the end of this year.
