Veridian Connections "flipped the switch" last Friday on a 140kW solar panel array on their Ajax, ON headquarters building. Solera Sustainable Energies, an Ajax, ON company, developed the project. Eclipsall manufactured the NRG 60 solar panels for the project at their manufacturing facility in Toronto.
The solar array, consisting of more than 400 photovoltaic panels and occupying roughly 45,000 square feet of the building's garage roof, will generate approximately 160,000 kWh of clean, carbon-free electricity annually - an amount equivalent to that consumed by about 20 typical households.
"Solera is pleased to have developed this project for Veridian; we applaud their forward thinking and positive action", said Leonard Allen, CEO of Solera.
Solera and Eclipsall were joined in the project by three tier one participants, KACO, Burman Fellows Group and Unistrut, all respected and well known for their solar energy experience and stellar work throughout North America and beyond.
"This is a flagship project and sends a strong message about the importance of solar energy to Ontario communities. We were pleased to work alongside Solera and all the team members who developed, designed and built the Veridian solar array," said Les Lyster, CEO of Eclipsall.
Veridian Connections Inc. delivers electricity to more than 115,000 Ontario customers in the Cities of Pickering and Belleville, the Towns of Ajax, Port Hope and Gravenhurst, and the communities of Uxbridge, Bowmanville, Newcastle, Orono, Port Perry, Beaverton, Sunderland and Cannington.
