City-Owned Buildings in Toronto to Install Rooftop Solar Power Projects: Filed under: Energy News

The generated power will be fed into Toronto Hydro-Electric System’s electrical grid, which is expected to generate gross revenue of over $16 million for 20 years.

The panels will be installed at ten different locations in Toronto, for which about 60% of the panels will be manufactured locally, thus helping the growth and development of solar energy sector in a region. Several international companies, like Trina Solar, have entered the Canadian solar power market as they see significant opportunity growing there.
