Solar PV manufacturing in Canada


By Joshua M. Pearce, Professor of Mechanical and Materials Engineering, Queen’s University

Canada is aggressively pursuing solar photovoltaic manufacturing. Ontario, the province leading the charge, is already the manufacturing hub for other products in Canada and currently boasts one of the most generous feed-in tariffs in the world. This incentive is closely tied to domestic content restrictions in order to foster Canadian photovoltaic manufacturing. In addition, a host of other tax incentives and research and development stimulus packages are making Canada an increasingly popular destination for both established manufacturers and start-up companies.
