“This landmark event is a precedent-setting example of community and commercial collaboration in clean energy development,” said SolarShare president Mike Brigham. “The WaterView project has brought together cutting-edge technology, industry-leading design and local human resources in a project that allows residents in Mississauga and across the province to invest in, and benefit from, clean solar power.”

“We have deployed our innovative PowerTilt system, which enables a high yield output from the solar array while limiting weight and impact to the roof structure. We expect this to be the first of many Uni-Solar systems on large commercial and institutional rooftops throughout Ontario,” added United Solar's Christopher Bala.
