Diamond Head Industrial Mall Inc. has partnered with Solar Provider Group to install a 600 kW solar project in Cobourg, Ontario. The solar project, located on the rooftop of Diamond Head Industrial Mall Cobourg, is a shining example of how property owners are working together with Solar Provider Group to take advantage of Ontario’s Feed-In Tariff program. Through its rooftop lease model, Solar Provider Group builds, owns and operates the solar system on the client’s rooftop at no capital cost to the property owner. The property owner benefits from having solar onsite and monetizing what is otherwise unused roof space.
The 600 kW system will generate an estimated 690,000 kWh of clean electricity annually, mitigating the effects of 55 tonnes of carbon dioxide from Ontario’s electricity system – equivalent to powering 70 homes per year. Apart from its environmental benefits, the project has generated a number of construction, engineering and project management jobs, boosting local economic growth.
