Canadian Solar Opens Microgrid Testing Center

Guelph, Ontario is making a name for itself as a microgrid and district energy center. Last week, Canadian Solar opened the Canadian Solar Microgrid Testing Centre, which will focus on micro-grid testing and design as well as smart grid assessment services.

The testing facility, partially funded by the Ontario Ministry of Energy, will be located in Guelph, Ontario, where researchers will facilitate the development of both off-grid and grid-tied microgrid projects.

The town of Guelph, itself, has announced a plan for an interconnected thermal grid to serve industrial, commercial and residential buildings across the city. A new high-efficiency heating and cooling system in the Sleeman Centre in downtown Guelph is the first step toward building a city-wide district energy network.

Canadian Solar has built up about 500 MW of annual module capacity in Ontario.
