(ADPnews) - Dec 9, 2010 - US solar power firm Recurrent Energy announced on Tuesday that it has opened an office in Toronto, Canada, to run its development operations in the country and in the eastern parts of the USA.
The move comes to support the company's business in Ontario. This April, Recurrent Energy won a contract from the Ontario Power Authority to provide on-the-ground support for solar power projects with a combined capacity of 149.5 MW, developed under the local feed-in tariff scheme. The company expects to spend more than CAD 650 million (USD 642m/EUR 487m) on the projects.
"We have been active in the province for several years and are now investing heavily in the region to bring many solar power plants online by 2013, which is a direct result of the strong provincial policy leadership," said David Brochu, vice president of east region development and Canadian managing director of the company.
