Nautilus Solar Energy advised that three of its rooftop PV systems in Ontario, totaling 1.25MW, had reached official commercial operation today. The projects are owned by Nautilus’ unit, Nautilus Solar Canada Limited Partnership and are supported by the Ontario Power Authority’s (OPA) FiT program, which will see OPA purchase the electricity produced by the systems for a fixed rate over a 20-year period.
Nautilus Solar is leasing the rooftop space from E&E McLaughlin Warehousing with the PV projects installed by Advanced Green Technologies. “These projects represent the first of many in our Ontario rooftop program,” remarked Nautilus Solar's CEO James Rice. “Ontario has shown great leadership by implementing the FiT program. We at Nautilus Solar are excited to help the province meet its renewable goals.”
