SunEdison and SkyPower will own and finance the solar parks and the Ontario Power Authority (OPA) will purchase the energy produced under the terms of the contract. The two parks are estimated to generate over 19 million KWh in their first year of operation and almost 400 million kWh over 20 years.

“SunE Sky Norfolk represents an important milestone in Ontario’s effort to create a world-leading market for green power and energy-efficient technologies,” said Levac. “Not only will increasing the province’s renewable energy supply clean up our air and fight climate change, but it will further reduce our reliance on fossil fuels.”

“Projects such as this will create hundreds of green jobs for Canadians,” commented Mayor Travale.
