A retail complex in Ottawa, Canada's Capital City is going solar with a system that will provide some 75 percent of the facility's electricity needs.
The retail building at 1344 Youville Drive in Ottawa's Orleans area houses retailers such as Campbell Pools, among others. The solar PV installation supplier is Cubit Power, an Ottawa based solar PV turnkey developer.
The commercial roof top solar project is 250Kw in size and will include almost 1,200 Eclipsall NRG 60 solar PV panels. Eclipsall manufactures the NRG 60 panels at its facility in Toronto.
The installation has produced over 27,000 kilowatt hours this month alone, which has an environmental benefit equivalent to over 50,000 passenger car miles driven.
"This is an important project with Cubit Power and we are excited to have our panels at its heart. It is a highly visible project in Canada's Capital", said Les Lyster, CEO of Eclipsall.
NRG 60 solar PV panels manufactured by Eclipsall in their Toronto, ON facility continue to earn top spot in operational tests carried out by the Toronto and Region Conservation Authority's Kortright Centre for Conservation's Photovoltaic Performance Verification Program, Ontario's premier environmental and renewable energy education and demonstration centre.
