Yesterday was a big day for Recurrent Energy. We spent the evening in Ontario, Canada with Premier Kathleen Wynne and Minister of Energy Bob Chiarelli celebrating the completion of our first six solar power plants in the province. These six plants will provide a total of 52 MWac (70 MWp) of clean solar power for Waubaushene and Smith Falls in Ontario.
In 2009, the Ontario government committed to transition much of the province’s electricity supply to clean, renewable resources harnessing the power of the sun. This transition has already made a major positive impact on both the environment and the economy. Recurrent Energy was selected to build a total of 20 solar power plants, providing 159 MWac (220 MWp) of clean solar power across southern Ontario as part of the province’s commitment to clean energy.
An incredible team came together to bring these projects all the way to operation, including the dedication and commitment of our Ontario and San Francisco staffs, our partners Mitsubishi Corporation and Osaka Gas, and of course the Ontario government, in particular the Ministry of Energy and the Ministry of the Environment, the Ontario Power Authority and Hydro One. It’s gratifying to see years of work put in by hundreds of dedicated people finally come to fruition.
