Fronius’ presence in Mississaugua, Ontario, will soon be expanding to include more than the sales and service subsidiary it has housed in the area. Fronius will be building a 50MW total capacity production site for its solar inverters, to be brought online by the end of the first quarter in 2011. Over 100 new jobs will be opened with this facility. The first assembly line will be for grid-connected Fronius IG Plus invertors, with the potential to expand production in the future.
“The market for renewable energy will grow rapidly in the coming years. Ontario is one of the most important markets of the future for Fronius,” explains Romuald Goure, managing director of Fronius Canada. “We are confident that other provinces will launch similar incentive programs in the future. Ontario is certainly a strong role model in this respect.”
