putting ontario-made solar panels to the test
In Woodbridge\'s Cortricht Center, through a field of weeds and wildflowers, you can see it as you approach: an organized place to show majesty and sunshine. -
However, these buildings were not mysteriously erected on stones dating back to 3000 B. C. , but solar modules mounted on high poles or on shelf systems.
The Kortright Center calls the area pvpv and aims to become the country\'s premier testing and Exhibition facility. -in-
Canadian Solar Energy Technology Company.
\"We call it solarhenge,\" says Paul Luukkonen of Sustainable Technologies. -
Kortright\'s coordinator is leading the pvpv program.
The centre is located on 325 hectares of woodland, not far northwest from Highway 400 and Major McKinsey. intersect.
There, about 130,000 visitors a year can hike, watch wildlife, taste maple syrup or attend one of dozens of practical seminars focusing on renewable energy.
It is owned and operated by Toronto and the Regional Conservation Authority, and has room for development.

Tariff plans encourage the deployment of renewable energy technologies, including solar energy, and Luke Conan and his team see an opportunity.
Before the start of the project, only one company in Ontario produced solar panels, a wooden bridge. -
The company headquartered in Solgate.
With the introduction of new local content rules, more foreign manufacturers began to set up assembly business in the province.
Luukkonen data show that there are currently about 18 brands of solar photovoltaic panels in Ontario, and the number is expected to grow.
\"The problem is that we\'ve seen many companies commit to getting a return on investment from their panels and how much energy their systems can provide,\" Luukkonen said.
For example, studies by the Canadian Natural Resources Agency show that-
KW solar panels can produce 1161 kW-
In southern Ontario, the number of hours per year, however, some manufacturers and developers claim that their products can produce up to 1,500 kilowatts of electricity. -
Hours - equal to Los Angeles and Mexico City.
\"We want to ensure that these salespeople provide realistic expectations to consumers out of concern for the sustainability of the industry,\" Luukkenon added, explaining how the pvpv plan came into being.
The current plan is to build a facility to test Ontario. -
Expose the panels side by side at the same angle to the sun.
Use the latest data-
Collecting equipment, pvpv technicians will measure panel performance under various conditions, taking into account environmental temperature, wind, snow and light conditions.
\"All products that meet Ontario feed marketing requirements-in-
The tariff plan, we want to test it and provide consumers with this information in a fair way, \"Lukinong said.
\"We are trying to instill a third of that confidence in consumers. \" -
\"The data will be published monthly.
The test facility will be officially launched by September, but the first of several large shelf systems designed for carrying panels has been formed.

Mary is one of those who expect to pay an annual fee of $12,000 to participate in the test program.
\"Obviously, the greater the value we have, the greater the value we bring to the project,\" Lukinong said.
\"Another purpose here is to provide a window for Ontario. -
Manufacturing technology and manufacturing for tens of thousands of people passing through each year.
\"Manufacturers are wise to join in, even if their panels are at the lower end of the package.
Those who do not join will send a signal to developers and consumers that they do not want to have their devices strictly inspected.
\"It will determine who is confident in their products and who is using the current situation to put garbage there,\" Lukinong said.
When they put out tens of thousands of dollars, no one wanted to buy garbage.
