Samsung's $3 Billion Solar & Wind Deal with Ontario

- Renewables - Aug 12, 2011

 

Ontario’s Green Energy Act has been the catalyst driving the Canadian province into the position of number two in installed solar capacity in North America, trailing only California.  In keeping up its renewable energy endeavors, Ontario has offered South Korea’s Samsung C&T Corp. a CA$3 billion contract to develop solar and wind farms throughout the province. 

The terms of the deal stipulate that Samsung will build 520-megawatt projects in the Haldimand and Chatham-Kent and 550-megawatt projects in Kingston and Bruce regions of Ontario.  The contract represents the initial two steps in what will be a five-step plan spanning two decades to construct and operate 2,000 MW of wind capacity and 500 MW of solar capacity in the province.

Under Ontario’s Green Energy Act, Samsung pledged to invest CA$7 billion into the province in 2010.  The pledge was made in exchange for CA$110 million in subsidies over a 25-year period.
