Toronto Schools Installing Solar On Hundreds Of Rooftops

Toronto District School Board (TDSB) trustees have approved an agreement with solar power producer Amp Solar Ltd. that will see solar panels installed on 450 school rooftops while offsetting the costs of major roof maintenance.

When fully installed, the panels will generate between 58 MW and 66 MW of electricity each year, according to the TDSB. The power will be sold into the distribution grid for use by Ontario energy consumers, including TDSB schools.

The final number of solar array installations will be determined through the Government of Ontario's feed-in-tariff process, with application approvals expected next month.
