The Arnprior Solar Project is one of the largest solar PV (photovoltaic) sites in Canada, and when it came online in 2009, it more than doubled the grid-connected solar PV capacity in the country. Arnprior is comprised of two adjacent sites west of the city of Ottawa, Ontario, with electricity production from the two sites connecting to the Hydro One distribution line to provide clean, safe, and sustainable electricity to the local community. Arnprior is a clean, safe and sustainable energy source meeting the peak energy demands of about 7,000 homes.

The Arnprior Solar Project employed approximately 150 local community trades during design/engineering/construction, resulting in over $20 million in local procurement for materials, equipment, and services.
