solar portfolio

Our solar projects range in size from 12 kW rural systems to 600 kW (DC) arrays on industrial rooftops and in non-arable fields. From Manitoulin Island to St. Catharines to Timiskaming, our projects are all generating clean power, and earning a solid return for our members. SolarShare’s portfolio consists of 51 projects totalling nearly 15 MW of installed capacity.

Yarker, Ontario

This 250 kW AC system is SolarShare's 48th project and it is located outside of Kingston, Ontario. SolarShare partnered with Queen Street Solar Co-op to complete the development and construction of the project, and purchased the project from Queen Street Solar after it achieved commercial operation in December 2018. This ground-mount system uses single-axis tracker technology, which follows the sun from east to west, and consists of 882 Hanwha Q.Peak modules.

During the development of this project, SolarShare had to conduct a number of site diligence reviews related to the environmental approvals process under the Environmental Activity and Sector Registry (EASR). As part of that diligence, a species at risk review was conducted by a consultant to explore whether there were any endangered or threatened species located on the proposed site. After conducting a field visit, it was determined that the site was indeed host to an endangered species, namely a butternut tree (Juglans cinerea). In response to this discovery, SolarShare worked with the landlord to move the project to a more suitable location on the site so as to avoid disturbing the tree.

The butternut tree is native to Ontario and is a member of the walnut family. It is under threat due to a fungal disease called butternut canker. You can find more information about this species of tree and its status in Ontario here.

SolarShare partnered with Penguin Power to complete the installations. Each installation consists of a Meca dual-axis tracker, a 10 kW AC photovoltaic array of mono-crystalline panels, and two 5 kW inverters. Each Sunfield project is under a microFIT contract and will generate approximately $15,000 in revenues per year. All of the projects were completed and commissioned by June 2011.
