Carmanah Awarded $1.1 Million in Contracts Towards Ontario’s Renewable Energy Development

TORONTO, ONTARIO, CANADA (November 8, 2012)

Toronto Hydro-Electric System Limited has awarded Carmanah Technologies (TSX:CMH) contracts worth approximately $1,100,000 (CAD) to engineer and construct three rooftop solar photovoltaic (PV) generating facilities. The systems are located on York Mills, McGregor and Mimico Arenas and are expected to produce more than 250,000 kWh of clean, renewable energy annually for the City of Toronto.

With its first grid connected systems installed in 2001, Carmanah remains one of Canada’s leading Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) service providers of rooftop solar generation. The company’s expertise has contributed to the awarding of 23 competitive contracts since the inception of Ontario Power Authority’s Feed-In Tariff (FIT) program in 2009, and awarded them twice for Solar PV Project of the Year by the Canadian Solar Industries Association. These three projects underscore the success of the company’s involvement in Canada’s renewable energy development with such partners as City of Toronto, PowerStream Solar and Northland Power.

Carmanah's EPC Services group will be exhibiting at the Canadian Solar Industries Association (CanSIA) national solar conference Dec 3-4th, 2012 in booth #805.
