Ontario’s Thunder Bay Airport Solar Park has been chosen as a finalist in Intersolar North America’s 2012 Solar Project Award competition. The project, owned and developed by SkyPower and EPC-contracted to Canadian Solar was hand-selected by an expert panel as one of entries under the “Solar Projects North America” category.
The Thunder Bay Airport project is one of the first utility-scale solar installations on airport authority land. The project was commissioned in October 2011 and, over the next 20 years, is anticipated to produce power for 15,000 homes.
Canadian Solar will be presenting the Thunder Bay Airport project at Intersolar’s Innovation Exchange at booth 9659 on July 10. Award winners will be announced that same day.
