“Aecon has a long-standing commitment to being a leader in the construction of innovative, renewable and sustainable energy solutions,” said Teri McKibbon, Aecon’s COO. “We are pleased to be working with Northland Power, and are confident this contract will showcase our abilities in delivering customized solutions for solar projects.”
Each of the six projects will be constructed on about 85 acres of land, and will consist of over 40,000 PV solar modules mounted on fixed structural supports. The projects, says Aecon, will sell the electricity under Ontario’s renewable energy Feed-in-Tariff (FIT) program, and will use Ontario-made equipment and local Ontario labour.
They are located near Smiths Falls and Belleville in Eastern Ontario, and Burk’s Falls near Huntsville. Work on the sites has begun, with completion of all six sites expected in 2013.
