SunEdison completes two new solar power projects in Ontario

SunEdison, Inc. (NYSE: SUNE), the world's largest renewable energy development company, has announced the interconnection of the 17.8 megawatt (MW) DC Solar Spirit and the 17.9 MW DC Bruining solar power plants, both located in Ontario. SunEdison has now installed more than 250 MW DC of utility-scale and commercial roof-top solar power plants in Canada.

"We're proud to support Ontario's goal of increasing the availability of clean, renewable energy," stated Michelle Chislett, Vice President and Canadian Regional Manager at SunEdison.  "We're also pleased to create jobs for the people of Ontario – these two solar power plants provided over 200 construction jobs."

The solar power plants will provide clean energy to the Independent Electricity System Operator (IESO) through a 20-year feed-in-tariff agreement. This is enough electricity to power more than 4,000 homes for 20 years, and is the equivalent of removing over 8,000 metric tonnes of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere annually.

The Solar Spirit solar power plant was purchased by BluEarth Renewables, and the Bruining solar power plant was purchased by Firelight Infrastructure Partners. Operation and maintenance of the plants will be performed by SunEdison Services, which provides global 24/7 asset management, monitoring and reporting services.
