Atlantic Wind & Solar, Inc. (OTC: AWSL) is pleased to announce the receipt of a Notice To Proceed (NTP) on another utility scale solar power plant in Ontario Canada. The NTP was received recently from the Ontario Power Authority (OPA) and marks the point at which construction can begin. This is a major milestone in the project development as it confirms that the local grid studies have been completed and accepted and that the grid is capable of accepting this power. This is also the point at which many projects in Ontario have failed and were abandoned despite having OPA power purchase agreements in place.
Construction has commenced on the estimated 60-day project. The $1.2 million utility scale project is located in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) of Ontario. It is sized at 240 KW AC and will supply power to the grid over a 20 year period. The solar power plant was developed by its Canadian subsidiary Atlantic Solar Inc.
