Large scale solar projects coming to Canada
June 3, 2013 by STAFF REPORT
Maple Reinders Constructors Ltd. and SunDurance Energy have announced a joint venture to design, build and work on megawatt-scale solar projects in Canada.
The “Maple SunDurance” partnership will initially focus on the Ontario market for photovoltaic solar projects under the “Large FIT 2” feed-in tariff program administered by the Ontario Power Authority.
Maple SunDurance will typically engage on a project, or portfolio of projects, larger than one megawatt in capacity.
The Ontario Power Authority is expected to open the large-project window in the near future and Maple SunDurance is looking forward to working with developers and investors.
“We believe that this partnership is very timely,” said Harold Reinders, vice president of Maple Reinders, in a media release. “Project stakeholders have learned the importance of responsive, efficient and bankable partners for their projects and we believe Maple SunDurance really answers the call.”
The two companies will share expertise, market knowledge, buying power and experience to maximize the value of Maple SunDurance to its customers.
