Grand Renewable Solar Project now poised to proceed, creating hundreds of local jobs

WATERLOO, ON, Oct. 17, 2013 /CNW/ - s2e Technologies (s2e) announced today its development participation in the largest solar project in Canada. An important step forward has been taken for the 100 megawatt (MW) Grand Renewable Solar Project (GRS), with the formation of a financing partnership for the initiative, which will be located in Haldimand County, and is expected to create hundreds of local jobs.  That financing announcement was made October 15th by partners Samsung Renewable Energy, Inc., Connor Clark & Lunn Infrastructure and Six Nations of the Grand River.

Waterloo-based s2e played a key role in originating and structuring the transaction and will provide construction management services while the GRS project is being built.

"This is a good day for the community," said Milfred Hammerbacher, CEO of s2e Technologies Inc. "We're proud to be a part of an innovative project like this - one of the largest in North America - and to see a project of this caliber and quality come into our own community. We are also honoured to be part of the outstanding collaboration with Samsung Renewable Energy, Connor Clark & Lunn Infrastructure, Canadian Solar Inc., CarbonFree Technology and Six Nations of the Grand River".

The Grand Renewable Solar Project will create new solar jobs in southern Ontario from the manufacture of key components to the construction process and operation of the project. Those jobs should begin soon, according to Hammerbacher. Construction is expected to begin almost immediately and the project is expected to be operational by mid-2015.
