Rooftop Solar Can Save Ontario $250Mn Yearly (Report Attached)
Canadian Renewable Energy Association
Date: 2021-08-25
According to a study from the Toronto-based Canadian Renewable Energy Association (CREA), doubling Ontario's solar power generation capacity would help reduce costs for the whole energy system by up to $250 million per year by 2030.

The CREA's Impact of Behind-the-Meter Solar in Ontario study, conducted by Power Advisory LLC, modeled various scenarios for the adoption of residential and business rooftop solar PV across Ontario, including a high-ambition scenario that envisioned adding 3,000 MW of new solar capacity (double the current total), by 2030. The study assessed how additional solar would affect the province's wholesale electricity market and found increasing the deployment of rooftop solar would deliver significant cost savings for the electricity system by reducing its reliance on natural-gas generation to meet daytime summer peak electricity demand, and by reducing the need for additional, expensive power procurements in the future.

The study showed that by enabling more electricity to be generated locally, solar could also help Ontario avoid the need to invest in new electricity grid infrastructure which could translate into further cost savings.

GE Renewable Energy, LM Wind Power
Date: 2021-07-23
GE Renewable Energy reports is partnering with the governments of Canada and Quebec for the expansion of its LM Wind Power wind turbine blade facility in Gaspe, Quebec, Canada.

The plant, which was previously expanded in 2017, has manufactured more than 10,000 blades, equivalent to approximately 6,000 MW. since it began production in 2005.

According to the Canadian Renewable Energy Association , Canada has more than 13,500 MW of installed wind capacity, enough to supply approximately three million homes.
