SILFAB ONTARIO TO SUPPLY SUNNY DAY ENERGY WITH APPROXIMATELY 5 MWP DOMESTIC CONTENT MODULES "MADE IN ONTARIO" OVER THE NEXT 2 YEARS
Sunny Day Energy, an affiliate of a family owned and operated property development and management company based on Ontario, will install the modules for a number of commercial rooftop projects in the Greater Toronto area, ranging in size between 200 and 500 KWp each.
MISSISSAUGA, ON, Dec, 20th 2011 – Sunny Day Energy and Silfab Ontario recently entered into an agreement to supply approximately 5 MWp of high efficiency domestic content modules. Sunny Day Energy, an affiliate of a family owned and operated property development and management company based on Ontario, will install the modules for a number of commercial rooftop projects in the Greater Toronto area, ranging in size between 200 and 500 KWp each.
The high efficiency Silfab modules chosen by Sunny Day Energy are manufactured in the new production plant in Mississauga, ON, thus satisfying the local Feed-In-Tariff program's Domestic Content requirement. Sunny Day opted for Silfab Ontario in part because of Silfab's commitment to quality, highly efficient and maintained production facility, and Silfab's ability to offer modules using either poly-crystalline or mono-crystalline silicon in both 60 and 72 cell counts.
Silfab Ontario opened its high-efficiency solar module manufacturing plant this year. This fully automated plant has an annual production capacity of 90 MWp and represents one of the biggest solar manufacturing plants in Canada. Continuous quality checks both in-line and off-line, have been set up in order to ensure high efficiency and long lasting modules.
The majority of Sunny Day's multiple rooftop projects, the first one already in progress, will be developed by RESCo Energy Inc., a full service Engineering, Procurement, Construction and Maintenance (EPCM) firm focused on rooftop solar PV energy systems.
Silfab Ontario will deliver SLA 60 cells single-crystalline modules, with a power pick of 255 and 260 Wp. These power classes are the perfect solutions in order to optimize energy production and rooftop available surface.
"A project like this" - says Franco Traverso, President of Silfab Ontario Inc.- "keeps production lines running and people employed, and gives us strong visibility in the upcoming years. Ontario is still a photovoltaic market with a huge potential, despite the current discussions about the decrease of FITs and the resulting temporary cooling of the demand".
