SkyPower & Excess Energy Form Joint Venture

SkyPower has entered into a new joint venture with Excess Energy, an installer of solar power systems in Ontario, Canada. The joint venture, called SkyPower Lite, plans to offer Canadians turnkey solar solutions, and will initially focus on solar hot water solutions.

“This partnership brings together a combination of 15 years of experience in both off grid and grid-tie solar and wind energy systems for light commercial and residential buildings,” said Vern Sherwood, managing director of SkyPower Lite and former president of Excess Energy. “Canadians need and want an opportunity to have solar solutions on their roofs as a responsible option to reduce pollution and energy costs.”

The pilot project is part of the Ontario government’s 2007 green objectives, the “Go Green” climate change strategy, under which the government hopes to have 100,000 installed solar systems.
