The St. Isidore Solar Project currently consists of one 12 MWp solar PV installation east of Ottawa, near the town of St. Isidore in the Municipality of the Nation, Ontario. The site utilizes thin film panels to produce electricity that is connected to the local Hydro One distribution grid. This green energy offers a source of distributed generation in eastern Ontario, and strengthen the presence of EDF Renewables in the region. The St. Isidore Solar Project joins the Elmsley Solar Project, located near Lombardy in the Township of Rideau Lakes, to highlight EDF Renewables’ 36 MWp 2010 solar construction achievements.
In 2009, EDF Renewables placed the Arnprior Solar Project in service, which added almost 24 MWp to eastern Ontario power’s system. All five sites have been developed under the Government of Ontario’s Renewable Energy Standard Offer Program (RESOP).
