VAUGHAN, ON, July 5, 2012 /CNW/ - NorthGrid Solar Inc. ("NorthGrid"), an
Ontario-based Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) company,
recently signed a turn-key EPC agreement with New Horizon Development
Group for 4 of its commercial/industrial buildings. The systems total
almost 600kW DC and are part of the Ontario Power Authority's Feed In
Tariff (FIT) Program. Three of the projects, including the New Horizon
Development Group head office, are located in Hamilton, ON. and one is
located in Burlington, ON.
The projects utilize NorthGrid's unique elevated truss system (ETS)
which provides ongoing roof access, opportunity for greater revenue and
optimized system performance to the project owner. The ETS system is
best suited for industrial, commercial or institutional buildings with
a large number of rooftop units that cause shading or rooftops that are
unable to support ballasted solar energy systems.
"NorthGrid is thrilled by the New Horizon commitment to its ETS system
for these important projects." said Carlo Di Gioacchino, President and
CEO of NorthGrid Solar Inc. "Having experienced builders of high-rise
condominium projects select NorthGrid Solar for its commercial rooftops
is a clear endorsement of our solution." said Mr. Di Gioacchino.
"As builders and developers ourselves, we immediately recognized the
benefits of NorthGrid's solar PV solution." said Jeff Paikin, President
of New Horizon Development Group. "It's in our best interest to select
a solution that will respect our rooftops as well as last the full
20-year OPA contract life." said Mr. Paikin.
NorthGrid Solar is scheduled to commence construction immediately.
