Options for Green Energy Solar Project Installation has Begun

Options for Green Energy is excited to announce a new solar development in Pickering, Ontario. The Queen Street Solar Co-operative, in a joint with Veridian Connections Inc. and Solera Sustainable Energies Company Limited with funding from Ontario’s Feed-in Tariff Program, has begun installation of the project on the roof of the Claremont Community Centre, Library and Fire Station #4.

Options for Green Energy's Senior Development Consultant Marc van Beusekom recently visited the site to check out the progress of the development.

Solar panels will cover the majority of the south roof slopes and the main roof of the gymnasium.

The panels are expected to produce 100,000kWh of electrical energy annually and will be fed back into Ontario’s grid. The energy savings represent about half the annual electrical requirements of the Claremont Community Centre and over 61,000kg of Carbon Dioxide emissions will be avoided each year because of the panels.

Installation and construction on the project has begun and is expected to be completed by the end of the month.

Thanks to the team working on the project for the tour of the site and for showing us the materials being used on the project.
