November 29 (Renewables Now) - Canada’s Innergex Renewable Energy Inc (TSE:INE) has sealed an off-take deal for electricity that will be produced from a 200-MW solar photovoltaic (PV) project in Ohio.
The long-term power purchase agreement (PPA) was signed with an unnamed investment-grade US corporation, Innergex said on Thursday without disclosing the terms and conditions of the contract. Under its terms, it will sell the output of the Hillcrest solar park that will be built in Ohio’s Brown County.
Innergex will “soon move forward” with the construction phase, while sales under the PPA will begin once the power plant becomes operational in 2020.
To be installed on an existing pasture and agricultural land in Green Township, the Hillcrest solar farm will be equipped with more than 600,000 PV panels mounted on single-axis trackers. Its annual output is estimated to be around 410,000 MWh.
An interconnection service agreement for the project is in place, Innergex said.
