  • The three PV rooftop installations are located in southern Ontario, Canada and have a total combined capacity of 871.3 kW
  • Martifer Solar completed the multi-site portfolio of installations for OZZ Solar
  • The rooftop installations will produce sufficient solar energy to power over 800 inhabitants and to avoid the annual emission of approximately 700 tons of greenhouse gases

Martifer Solar, a subsidiary of Martifer SGPS, completed a multi-site portfolio of projects in Ontario, Canada with combined capacity of 871.3 kW. The portfolio of solar installations, which are installed over several rooftops in the southern Ontario area, was built for the project developer, OZZ Solar.

The portfolio of projects consists of three PV rooftop installations, which were completed over the course of 2013. Martifer Solar was responsible for the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) services for these installations.

The 871.3 kW rooftop project portfolio signifies Martifer Solar's continued strength in the rooftop segment of the solar PV market in Canada. The multi-site installation consists of two rooftop PV projects in Richmond Hill, and one rooftop PV project located in Cambridge, Ontario. The total system utilizes more than 3,400 crystalline silicon modules, which allows for a production capacity of 1045.56 MWh/year. The installation will produce the equivalent to the consumption of over 800 inhabitants and will avoid approximately 700 tons of CO2 emissions each year.

Co-founder and Vice President of Sales of OZZ Solar Gerry De Luca stated, "The completion of these projects is an important milestone for OZZ Solar to showcase our commitment to the development of rooftop solar projects in Canada. The collaboration with Martifer Solar proved to be successful due to the quality of their staff and their experience in the market, which enabled the company to provide us with cost-saving strategies for the construction process."
