CAMBRIDGE, Ont.: Ontario’s Feed-in-Tariff (FIT) continues to generate business in the province, with Kromet International Inc. announcing an agreement with Sharp Electronics to provide FIT-compliant solar panels to developers and integrators; and SunEdison getting an additional 31 megawatts of solar projects by the Ontario Power Authority (OPA).

Kromet, through its wholly owned Cambridge, Ont.-based subsidiary Kromet Solar Inc., will supply Sharp 230- and 235-watt polycrystalline modules (that use silicon refined in Ontario) and solar racking systems that are manufactured at its facilities in Cambridge and Hamilton.

OPA has awarded SunEdison, a global solar energy services provider, 31 megawatts AC of solar photovoltaic (PV) projects as part of the FIT program. This is in addition to the 28 megawatts of ground-mount and rooftop solar projects already deployed by SunEdison in Ontario.

The installations include two 10-megawatt projects in Rideau Lakes, one 110-megawatt project in South Stormont, one 500-kilowatt project in Mississauga, and one 500-kilowatt project in Whitby.

SunEdison, a subsidiary of MEMC Electronic Materials Inc. has Canadian headquarters in Toronto. It develops, finances, installs and operates distributed power plants using PV technology.
