Langley Rooftop Project
In July 2013, P2 Solar completed a 53 KWp solar PV rooftop project on Canada Ticket Inc.’s warehouse rooftop in Langley, BC. For P2 Solar, the project was a turning point that marked the company’s transition from a “development stage” enterprise to a “revenue-producing” one.
At the time of commissioning, this project was one of the largest solar PV project connected to BC Hydro’s electricity grid. The solar PV array is expected to generate approximately 10% of Canada Ticket’s electricity power requirements, and demonstrated the potential viability of distributed solar PV facilities in BC. P2 Solar hopes to expand the project’s capacity in the near future.
Even without special tariff incentive support from BC Hydro, P2 Solar believes that large-scale solar PV facilities have the potential to operate profitably in BC under the current energy regulatory regime if sited in those parts of BC that receive the greatest solar irradiation. The project has prompted P2 Solar′s management team to begin further assessments toward building a megawatt scale ground mounted solar PV facility in BC. The Company has already undertaken preliminary site evaluations. Furthermore, the Canada Ticket, Inc. project has also raised awareness and interest among potential new clients in BC who are seeking to incorporate distributed green power to their facilities.
