-- Toronto, March 15, 2012- Ontario Solar Provider (OSP) is supplying green electricity to the Toronto grid 253 days after being offered a contract by the Ontario Power Authority. The company declared their 180kW rooftop solar PV generator in North York operational under the Feed-In Tariff program last Friday, March 9.
A focus on connection issues and the benefit of a mild winter allowed OSP to work with Toronto Hydro to complete the project in the remarkable timeframe. “We’re thrilled to have this installation up and running in such a short window. Toronto Hydro and the Ontario Power Authority have been fantastic partners, and we’re excited to continue bringing solar projects online throughout the province,” said Ian Rice, OSP’s Manager of Interconnection and Regulatory Affairs.
The generator will produce enough green energy to offset approximately 200,000kg of CO2 a year. This is the 11th FIT project connected by OSP in the province of Ontario.
