Carmanah to Build Innovative PV System for BrightRoof Solar

Will begin installation of the rooftop facility in Wallaceburg, Ontario later this month.

TORONTO--BrightRoof Solar LP has contracted Carmanah Technologies (TSX: CMH) to design and build a 250 kW solar photovoltaic (PV) system on an industrial building with varied roof surfaces. Carmanah's Solar Engineering Construction Procurement (EPC) Services group will begin installation of the rooftop facility in Wallaceburg, Ontario later this month.

BrightRoof Solar participates in Ontario's Feed-In Tariff program as a long-term owner and operator of rooftop solar facilities. Carmanah's successful experience in the industry has led to multiple projects with similar solar generating businesses including PowerStream Solar, Toronto Hydro and Northland Power.

This project required a unique inverter and racking solution for the varied roof surfaces on the host building. Carmanah's experienced EPC team designed an integrated racking system from Polar Racking and Schletter Canada - local Windsor based companies – to support both flat and sloped surfaces respectively. To accommodate multiple slopes within the surface of the host's roof, Carmanah incorporated into its design a central inverter from Power One which features a modular architecture and multiple maximum power point trackers (MPPT).

"We are very happy to be working Carmanah on this project, and with the attention to detail Carmanah provided for this physically challenging facility," said David Oxtoby, a director of BrightRoof Solar LP.

Carmanah is an award-winning Solar EPC services provider that has installed more than 70 solar systems ( across Canada. Recent projects include PowerStream Solar's Mount Joy Community Centre and Toronto Hydro installations at McGregor, Mimico and York Mills Arenas. Carmanah's Solar EPC Services group will be exhibiting at CanSIA Solar Canada 2012 ( on December 3-4th, in booth 805.
