The first 100% community owned solar project in Northern Ontario is currently under construction. The project is being developed by Green Timiskaming Development and Solar Share which are both not for profit organizations. All the work should be completed by July 20th.
The 240 members of Green Timiskaming and the thousand members of Solar Share have invited the new Minister of Energy Glenn Thibeault to do the official ribbon cutting for the new solar project.
Although there has been a significant amount of solar development in the region this would be the first project in North Eastern Ontario that is 100% community owned. In addition to financial support community power brings political support to the region.
