Developing Solar Power in Ontario
Solar Flow Through President and CEO, Matt Wayrynen, reports, "The net proceeds of the offering will be used by Solar Flow-Through to develop and operate solar power generation projects in the Province of Ontario under the Ontario Power Authority's (OPA) Feed-in-Tariff (FIT) program. FIT contracts provide fixed purchase rates for solar power and are guaranteed by the OPA for 20 years."
Funding Structure and CRCE Tax Incentives
Limited Partners' investments would fund a portion of the capital costs of each project. These expenses are expected to qualify as Canadian Renewable Conservation Expenses (CRCE). The common shares of the Subsidiary Companies purchased by the Partnership are expected to constitute "flow-through shares" for the purposes of the Tax Act.
Focus: Commercial Rooftop and Ground Mount Installations
Solar Flow-Through proposes to develop projects with capacities of 100 kW to 500 kW AC, focusing initially on (i) commercial rooftop installations covering approximately 25,000 to 150,000 square feet and (ii) fixed ground mount installations. These installations are connected to the electric grid (grid-tied), allowing the producer to feed electricity into the grid and receive payment under the OPA's FIT program.
