Veridian Connections, an electrical utility in Ontario, recently connected its 140kW solar panel array on their headquarters in Ajax. Solera Sustainable Energies, a local company, developed the project and Eclipsall manufactured the NRG 60 solar panels at their manufacturing facility in Toronto.
The solar array, consisting of more than 400 photovoltaic panels and occupying roughly 45,000 square feet of the building’s garage roof, will generate approximately 160,000 kWh of clean, carbon-free electricity annually – an amount equivalent to that consumed by about 20 typical households.
Solera and Eclipsall were joined in the project by three tier one participants, KACO, Burman Fellows Group and Unistrut.
“This is a flagship project and sends a strong message about the importance of solar energy to Ontario communities,” said Les Lyster, CEO of Eclipsall.
Veridian Connections delivers electricity to more than 115,000 Ontario customers in the Cities of Pickering and Belleville, the Towns of Ajax, Port Hope and Gravenhurst, and the communities of Uxbridge, Bowmanville, Newcastle, Orono, Port Perry, Beaverton, Sunderland and Cannington.
