Two more solar farms to be developed in Ontario

SAULT STE MARIE, ONT-Two new solar farms, capable of delivering 20 megawatts (MW) of renewable electricity will be developed in Sault Ste Marie. The $120-million project will be the second-largest solar farm in Canada, after the 40-megawatt project in the Sarnia area announced earlier this year. This brings to 140 the number of projects awarded under Ontario's Standard Offer Program since February. Taken together, these projects will generate 595 MW of renewable energy, enough to meet the electricity requirements of approximately 150,000 homes.
