Power Developer Hires Panasonic under Ontario’s FIT Program

July 10, 2015 By Linda Hardesty

OntarioPetawawa Renewable Power Corporation, a developer of Ontario renewable energy projects, signed a full engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract with Panasonic Eco Solutions Canada. Panasonic will build three 500 kWac/600 kWdc groundmount PV projects in Ontario under the Ontario Power Authority (OPA)/Feed-in-Tariff (FIT) programs. Panasonic Eco Solutions expects to start construction this summer.

The three projects stem from the FIT 3.0/3.5 program.

Petawawa’s wind and solar projects have won long-term energy supply contracts with the OPA. The company’s development portfolio totals over 56 MW in Ontario.

Panasonic Eco Solutions Canada is currently engaged in a number of rooftop and groundmount projects in the province, including a recently completed 6 MWdc solar groundmount project in Coboconk, Ontario.

Petawawa’s FIT solar projects are located a short distance north of downtown Toronto. Here, the company’s subsidiary solar project partnerships have collaborated with a Odawa group First Nation in the ownership of ground-based projects.
