Solar Source Corp. (SSC) will be locating a manufacturing facility in Windsor, Ont., to produce crystalline silicon solar PV panels. SSC’s 45,000-sf production facility will be located at the Windsor International Airport, and will serve as SSC’s and its manufacturing partner’s “beachhead investment in North America”.
SSC is a Canadian renewable energy holding company wholly owned by Solar Bancorp Inc.—a Canadian solar-focused merchant bank. SSC has partnered with Hind High Vacuum Company (HHV), a manufacturer of amorphous silicon thin film and crystalline silicon solar panel manufacturing tools in India.
The first phase of the project is expected to result in 150 full-time jobs, while the second phase is expected to create an additional 50.
“Windsor’s embrace of the new renewable energy era as highlighted in Ontario’s Green Energy Act is impressive, and we wish to congratulate them on their forward thinking attitude,” said Ross Beatty, SSC president.
