SunEdison & SkyPower Activate 9.1-MW First Light PV Project

SunEdison Canada and SkyPower Corp., have activated a 9.1-megawatt (MW) ground mount solar photovoltaic (PV) system. The project, named First Light, covers 90 acres of land. SunEdison and SkyPower expect First Light to generate more than 10 million kilowatt hours (kWh) per year.

During construction of First Light, SunEdison and SkyPower worked closely with Ontario's Ministry of Natural Resources to successfully preserve habitat for the endangered Eastern Loggerhead Shrike on the property.

"As the largest system deployed under Ontario's RESOP, First Light Solar Park is a first step in our plan to develop more rooftop and ground mount solar systems. Our joint venture in this project with SkyPower is a success and in full operation, delivering the benefits of solar to Ontario," said Carlos Domenech, SunEdison's COO. "The province's recently announced Feed-in-Tariff program will continue to stimulate solar development. With the support of the provincial government, municipal leaders and communities, Ontario is an exciting market for solar, and we look forward to building on the foundation we have established with First Light."
