Wills Transfer, working with Enfinity Canada, will be implementing rooftop solar systems on three of its warehouses. The rooftops used will be located at Wills’ Ottawa, Brockville and Perth, Ontario locations. Enfinity will be financing, developing, monitoring and maintaining the three rooftop systems, which will have a total installed capacity of 1.308MWp and produce around 1.5 million kilowatt hours per year. Construction is slated to begin early in 2011.
“Energy efficiency and reduction of greenhouse gases are key business and environmental strategies for Wills Transfer, and we continue to work to make them an integral part of our operations,” said Brent Ellis, director of commercial warehouses for Wills Transfer. “The Enfinity model will enable us to implement sustainable energy production without investment. Enfinity’s demonstrated professionalism and expertise additionally provides us with confidence in the long-term safety and security of our facilities.”
