Suffield Solar, a subsidiary of Canadian Solar, and Direct Energy Business, announced that they have signed a long-term agreement under which Direct Energy Business will purchase all of the electrical output and associated capacity from the Suffield solar facility (32 MWp/23 MWac) being developed in Southeast Alberta, Canada, which is scheduled to be online in 2020.
"With increased customer demand in summer, the addition of 23 MW of solar output will help Direct Energy build renewable power supply options for our customers and provide an alternative to traditional market-based hedges" said David Brast, Senior Vice President, North America Gas and Power, Direct Energy Business.
The Suffield project is anticipated to be the largest solar photovoltaic (PV) facility in the province of Alberta when it enters operation in 2020.
