In 2011 Carmanah Technologies engineered, procured, and constructed a 350 kW rooftop photovoltaic (PV) system on the Thornhill Community Centre located in Markham, Ontario. PowerStream, a municipally-owned electricity distribution company, will lease the Thornhill Community Centre rooftop and sell the energy generated by the PV system to the Ontario Power Authority under the Feed-In Tariff (FIT) program. Once integrated, the new solar generating facility will produce revenue at a rate of $0.635 per kWh, or approximately $300,000 per year.
