The project includes a 7.5 megawatt solar carport rooftop solar array producing 11.9 million kWh of energy annually. The installation will offset 8,400 tpy of CO2 equivalents each year, which is the same as taking 1,800 cars off the road.
sPower is owned by a joint venture partnership between The AES Corporation (AES), a worldwide energy company headquartered in Arlington, Virginia, and the Alberta Investment Management Corporation.

The Act will help mitigate the uncertainty surrounding these power plants and spur investments in new renewable energy and battery storage projects across Illinois as well as sustain otherwise uneconomic generation for five years while allowing time for additional capacity to come online.
Currently, as much as 75 pct of Vistra's subsidiaries' -- TXU Energy, Homefield Energy, Dynegy and Luminant -- downstate generation capacity located within MISO Zone 4 is at risk of closure by the end of 2019. Vistra's subsidiaries' nearly 5,500 MW of generation capacity accounts for 40 pct of MISO Zone 4's summer capacity.

The just announced rules are needed to determine the figure that will serve as the cap on emissions and how the province will monitor compliance with the law. Those new regulations also set out which companies will need to report emissions, including: facilities generating at least 50,000 tpy of GHG emissions; per year. oil and gas suppliers that import or produce 200 litres of fuel or more for consumption in Nova Scotia; natural gas distributors whose fuel, when burned, produces 10,000 or more tpy of GHGs.
The province estimates there are about two dozen companies that will fall under the legislation. Companies will be expected to pay for this work themselves. Those costs, along with whatever they may have to pay for exceeding the as yet undetermined emission limits, which will then be passed along to consumers.
