After the Ontario government passed an aggressive Feed-in Tariff program last year, companies have been pouring into the province, hoping to take advantage of the generous rates for renewables. In yet another utility-scale solar development a groundbreaking ceremony was held earlier this week to celebrate the launch of two solar-PV parks totaling 18 megawatts (MW) of capacity in Norfolk County, Ontario.

Together, the two solar parks are expected to generate over 19 million KWh in their first year of operation and almost 400 million kWh over 20 years.
