Main Street Power closes financing for 9MW of Toronto-based solar roof projects

Financing was recently closed for 9MW of solar rooftop projects for the Toronto area by MOM Solar, a limited partnership owned by Main Street Power and MS Solar Solutions with universal bank NORD/LB. The projects are located on large retail stores and have 20-year contracts with Ontario Power Authority. The credit facility is for CAN$35.4 million, which will finance the purchase of the completed projects from affiliates of MOM Solar.

"This closing for an aggregated distributed generation portfolio is an exciting story for the solar industry and is a testament to the dedication of our partners," said Amory Host, CEO of Main Street Power. "These projects provide a great combination of economic benefits to the rooftop owners, as well as local jobs for Toronto-based workers and environmental benefits for the Province of Ontario," Host added.

    Looking back, 2014 was a year of convalescence for a PV industry still battered and bruised from a period of ferocious competition. End-market demand continued apace, with analysts towards the end of 2014 predicting the year would see between around 45 and 50GW of deployment. That has begun to feed through to the supplier end of the market, with all the main manufacturers announcing capacity expansions in 2015 and further ahead.

    Although the past few years have proved extremely testing for PV equipment manufacturers, falling module prices have driven solar end-market demand to previously unseen levels. That demand is now starting to be felt by manufacturers, to the extent that leading companies are starting to talk about serious capacity expansions later this year and into 2015. This means that the next 12 months will be a critical period if companies throughout the supply chain are to take full advantage of the PV industry’s next growth phase.
