Students check out rooftop solar project

Students of École secondaire catholique Franco Cité learned about the dual realities of climate change and rooftop solar energy production on Earth Day Wednesday.

A 150-kilowatt solar installation was recently completed on the roof of the school as a 50/50 partnership between the Conseil des écoles catholiques du Centre-Est (CECCE) and the Ottawa Renewable Energy Co-op (OREC).

The solar project was connected to the grid on Feb. 23rd and will produce 240-megawatt hours of power annually for 20 years under Ontario’s feed-in tariff program. The installation cost $1 million and will generate $3.5 million in revenues over the contract life.
