SunEdison closes on Ontario solar power plants

Sponsored by

Solar energy technology manufacturer SunEdison closed on financing for two solar power plants to be built in Ontario, Canada. Deutsche Bank Securities Inc. is providing construction financing. The power plants will provide employment for skilled manufacturing and construction workers in Ontario.

SunEdison will manage the construction of the two plants, which are both planned to be operational by the end of 2014. The solar power plants will be composed of over 100,000 SunEdison Silvantis Photovoltaic Solar Modules, which will be manufactured in the province of Ontario.

 

Silvantis Modules are built using SunEdison polysilicon and wafers to ensure maximum reliability and performance. Once operational, the solar power plants will be managed by the SunEdison Renewable Operation Center (ROC), which provides global 24/7 asset management, monitoring, field dispatch and reporting services.

According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Greenhouse Gas Equivalencies Calculator, the two plants will offset the carbon dioxide emissions of over 15.5 million pounds of coal annually. Together they will supply enough clean energy to power 1,300 homes each year.
