May 6, 2013 – Renewable Energy Systems Canada Inc. (RES Canada) says RES Group’s global construction portfolio had exceeded 8GW, more than 6000MW of which is located in North America.

“This is an important milestone for RES Group, and RES Americas and RES Canada have played a pivotal role in our overall construction portfolio,” said Dr. Ian Mays, CEO of RES Group. “We’re pleased to see that RES Canada continues to create economic growth, bringing clean energy and jobs to the communities in which we have projects.”

RES Americas was founded in 1997, and RES Canada in 2003. The two companies’ combined construction portfolio totals more than 6200MW of wind projects and more than 100MW of solar projects in Canada and the States. The companies have also constructed 534 miles of overhead and transmission lines, says RES.

“Canada’s renewable markets have been developing rapidly, and it’s exciting to see the changes taking place and the opportunities that are available to grow this important sector of our future economy,” said Peter Clibbon, vice-president of development for RES Canada. “We are very optimistic about future growth and the engaged role our company will play in the Canadian market.”
