TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - April 22, 2014) - Public Works and Government Services Canada
Bernard Trottier, Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Public Works and Government Services, on behalf of the Honourable Diane Finley, was pleased to announce today that the Government of Canada has awarded a contract to Toronto company Morgan Solar Inc. for its innovation, the Savanna™ tracker, through the Build in Canada Innovation Program (BCIP).
The Savanna™ tracker is a cost effective high-efficiency sun tracking system. Lightweight, self-stabilizing and robust this system will bring down the overall installation and development costs of solar panel installation. The turnkey system can be assembled with basic tools and without any prior knowledge of the product. The Savanna™ system eliminates the need for concrete foundations, cranes or other costly heavy machinery for both the setup and maintenance of the module.
The value of the contract awarded to Morgan Solar Inc. is approximately $305,000.
"Today I am pleased to announce great news about jobs and innovation in Toronto with this contract to Morgan Solar. In business for less than five years, this remarkable company is working hard to bring down the cost of solar energy and making great progress doing just that. Morgan Solar will now be able to get its products from the lab to the marketplace, which will directly benefit Canadian workers and their families."
