Town of Ontario Solar


The 2.0 MW ac / 2.8 MW dc Town of Ontario Solar Project is located adjacent to a waste water treatment facility. This dual-use site exemplifies the way solar project design can coexist with established infrastructure to fully utilize commercial and industrial property. The Town of Ontario Solar Project is expected to generate approximately 3,500,000 kilowatt-hours of clean renewable energy in its first full year of operation; enough electricity to power more than 250 homes. Additionally, the clean energy produced offsets nearly 2,500 metric tons of carbon dioxide produced by more traditional energy generation sources. The project will also provide power at a fixed price to the Town of Ontario for the next 25 years; offering the town substantial savings and insulation from volatile energy prices.

EDF Renewables engineers designed an innovative layout to maximize energy generation from a space constrained project site. During construction, EDF Renewables was able to design a process that allowed for town operations at the site to continue. The project utilizes a fixed-tilt racking system by RBI, Fronius Symo inverters, and Hanwha solar modules.
