Ontario, Canada -- First Solar and Enbridge have completed the 60-MW expansion of a solar park in Sarnia, Ontario. At 80 MW of capacity, the project is now the largest in the world, according to the companies.
The project was initially part of First Solar's development portfolio. But the company sold it to Enbridge, a diversified energy development company looking to get into the solar space. Enbridge invested over CAD $300 million to expand the facility, which contains about 1.3 million cadmium telluride thin film modules from First Solar.
The Sarnia solar farm was the winner of last year's Excellence in Renewable Energy Utility-Scale Project of the Year Award. We'll be releasing details of how to nominate projects in November, so be on the lookout.
