Day4 Signs 5.1-MW Solar Contract in Ontario

Day4 Energy has entered into a supply contract to provide a total of 5.1 megawatts (MW) of solar modules to Hybridyne Power Systems Canada Inc, which is 47.5% owned by of Atlantic Wind and Solar Inc. The 5.1-MW of projects that the modules will be used for includes the the 2-MW Newcastle Solar Energy Park, which was recently announced by AWSL, as well as 3.1-MW of rooftop arrays that will be installed in the Toronto.

Located approximately 80 kilometers east of Toronto, the 2-MW Newcastle ground mounted energy park will be the largest array from the group of projects and is expected to break ground in Q2 of 2010.

The 10-acre solar energy park will combine approximately 8,900 highly efficient Day4 60MC-I Guardian solar modules with eight of Hybridyne’s HPE Hyperwatt 250 XLS Professional Series PV inverters. It will be one of Canada’s larger photovoltaic (PV) installations upon its completion in late 2010.

The additional 3.1-MW of Day4 modules are expected to be used by Atlantic Wind and Solar on a variety of industrial and commercial flat roof arrays in the Toronto area.

The Day4 solar module is based on the company’s proprietary Day4 Electrode technology. Hybridyne’s advanced inverter technology is specifically designed to work with the Day4 Energy modules to convert direct current (DC) energy from the sun into usable alternating current (AC) electricity for the Ontario utility grid.
