Carmanah awarded $1.1 million in contracts towards Ontario’s renewable energy development

Friday, Nov 09, 2012

Toronto Hydro-Electric System Limited has awarded Carmanah Technologies (TSX:CMH) contracts worth approximately $1,100,000 (CAD) to engineer and construct three rooftop solar photovoltaic (PV) generating facilities. The systems are located on York Mills, McGregor and Mimico Arenas and are expected to produce more than 250,000 kWh of clean, renewable energy annually for the City of Toronto.

With its first grid connected systems installed in 2001, Carmanah remains one of Canada’s leading Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) service providers of rooftop solar generation. The company’s expertise has contributed to the awarding of 23 competitive contracts since the inception of Ontario Power Authority’s Feed-In Tariff (FIT) program in 2009, and awarded them twice for Solar PV Project of the Year by the Canadian Solar Industries Association. These three projects underscore the success of the company’s involvement in Canada’s renewable energy development with such partners as City of Toronto, PowerStream Solar and Northland Power.

Carmanah’s expertise in PV engineering guarantees each unique rooftop is met with a critical design strategy to ensure delivery of a safe, practical and optimal solution for energy production. The variety of roof materials on these particular host facilities comprised of corrugated steel, standing seam and modified bitumen, requiring Carmanah to conduct a comprehensive onsite structural review and roofing upgrades for two of the three buildings. Carmanah worked closely with Pyramids Engineering to perform the structural analysis and Foran's roofing to perform the roof repair work.

Carmanah’s solutions feature custom racking designs from Schletter Canada to suit each facility’s structural challenges and the rooftop systems will include Eclipsall modules and PVPowered inverters from Advanced Energy.
