PRLog - Oct. 4, 2012 - BRANTFORD, Canada -- Solar Energy from the Farm. "You Never Have to Plant; You Just Harvest."

BRANTFORD, ONTARIO – (PRESS RELEASE)  — 10/02/12 —  On Friday, September 28, 2012, ProQuip International helped celebrate the official opening of the 675kW AC solar energy project they provided EPC services for in partnership with Solarize Energy LP on the cattle barns of Van Osch Farms Ltd. in the Mt. Carmel/Lucan area of SW Ontario. This is ranked as the largest roof top solar panel systems installed on an Ontario farm to date. The project entailed the mounting and cabling of 3,393 solar panels on 5 barn roofs in 3 main farm locations and interconnecting them to 3 centralized inverter cabinets and the metered grid connections. The project was completed on time and under budget.

Several area dignitaries and news outlets were present, as were other farm and agricultural industry operators interested in the technology and opportunities to generate clean, green electricity and create an additional revenue stream from their own operations. “The second income source comes as a bonus”, Gerald Van Osch, co-owner of the farms with his brother Fred, said in a statement. “To capture the sunshine, what an idea,” he said. “You never have to plant; you just harvest.”

Presentations by speakers included Sam Tavernese, President of ProQuip International who stated “ProQuip International congratulates Solarize Energy on this fantastic solar development. ProQuip is proud and privileged to have provided the engineering, procurement and construction services to this project.

During the unveiling ceremonies at the farm located northwest of London, Ontario he continued "This project is a beacon to the economic and environmental benefits that solar power provides to the local community, as well as the global community.”

Reflecting on the company’s goals and philosophy he continued “Solar power represents the future and those of us privileged to be in the solar industry take our motivation from waking up everyday and saying “I’m going to make something good happen today”. This solar project is something good that is happening today!"

He concluded his thoughts stating that "ProQuip, through the services we provided to Solarize Energy, is proud to have assisted in making Solarize Energy’s corporate tagline "Do Good. Invest Wisely." come to reality. The future is now – Congratulations Solarize Energy!"
