Array Technologies Announces 9 MW DuraTrack HZ™ Tracking System Now Complete in Canada
Erie Ridge, Ontario site increases province’s renewable profile
Albuquerque, NM – 6/9/11 – Array Technologies has announced the completion of an 8.9 MW solar farm in Ontario, Canada. Constructed by North Key Construction and PCL Contractors Canada, it is owned and operated by SunEdison. The energy generated will be utilized at a levelized cost for the lifetime of the project—saving money as utility rates continue to climb.
Located near Ridgetown south of Highway 401, the solar farm utilizes Array Technologies’ DuraTrack HZ ™ tracking system—chosen for its superior performance and optimal design, which minimizes unnecessary materials to maximize the return on investment for all utility-scale projects. With up to 25% more energy generated by the DuraTrack HZ ™ trackers than fixed-rack applications, Array Technologies ensures the best return on investment in the industry today.
Ontario’s Green Energy Act, passed in 2010, provides feed-in-tariff incentives as part of a plan to encourage expanded development of renewable energy sources in the province. Array Technologies’ DuraTrack HZ ™ system will help the Ontario Power Authority advance its renewable energy goals as the region progresses towards a new energy economy.
