The projects have a combined capacity of approximately 1.3 MW (dc) and will sell the power generated to the local utility under a 20-year purchase agreement. The projects were completed in the fourth quarter of 2016 and qualified for the Massachusetts RPS Solar Carve-Out II Program.

We believe the U.S. remains an important market for us due to attractive project economics, coupled with streamlined infrastructure for project development. Our project pipeline in the U.S. is over 100 MW, and we expect the region to be a major source of revenue growth in the years ahead.”

Richard Dovere, Managing Partner of C2, added: “These systems represent another quality addition to our firm’s growing portfolio of distributed generation assets throughout the United States.”
