The 220kWac (260kWdc) solar array comprises 1,023 multicrystalline PV modules at 255W each, and the power will be transmitted to IESO with a 71.3 cents per kWh of rate for 20 years.
The solar power plant was developed by its Canadian subsidiary Atlantic Solar Inc. With the formal receipt of a notice of Commercial Operation (COD) from the Independent Electricity System Operator (IESO) this marks the final step in the construction and connection of this solar plant.
