Canadian Solar and Silvercreek Partner on 10MW solar plant

The agreement is to provide Ontario-made Canadian Solar modules for a ground-mounted utility-scale solar power plant in Canada.  This is Silvercreek's first utility scale solar power project in Ontario.

The 10 MWac solar power plant is located in Elgin County, south of the Town of Alymer in Ontario. It is scheduled to be completed and connected to the Ontario grid in July 2014 and is projected to generate over 17,500,000 kilowatt-hours per year.  The plant is powered by 48,384 Canadian Solar high performance CS6X modules that have been formally tested and awarded international certifications.  Once connected to the grid, the plant is expected to power approximately 1,699 houses annually and is expected to displace approximately 246,940 metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions over its 20-year operational period.  The project is being developed as part of the Ontario Power Authority (OPA) Feed-in Tariff contract.       

“This is our first project in Ontario and selecting Canadian Solar as our partner was an important decision” said Dave Moerman, President of Silvercreek Solar Park Inc. “We are pleased with our decision. Canadian Solar is the largest solar manufacturer in Canada, known for manufacturing high performance solar modules.  Both companies share in our commitment to the Ontario solar industry and are pleased to bring this showcase project online.”

The Silvercreek solar farm will be the first such facility to be built and connected in Elgin County. It will cover approximately 88 acres of land and is expected to create more than 150 new jobs throughout the development and construction phase of the project.
