TORONTO, March 1, 2021 – CarbonFree Technology and Connor, Clark & Lunn Infrastructure (CC&L Infrastructure) today announced the sale of their jointly owned interest in a portfolio of commercial-scale Ontario solar projects to Potentia Renewables Inc, with funding from the newly created Power Sustainable Energy Infrastructure Partnership.
The BrightRoof solar portfolio, comprised of 57 rooftop and 5 ground-mount operating projects located across the province, has a generating capacity 18.6 MWp and produces more than 20 GWh of clean electricity each year. Twelve of the projects in the portfolio are wholly owned, while the other 50 are owned in partnership with the Métis Nation of Ontario (MNO), which will continue to hold its stake in the portfolio.
Over the past 10 years of working together, CarbonFree and CC&L Infrastructure have shifted their focus to developing and operating larger, utility-scale solar projects. In addition to the BrightRoof portfolio and 390 MWp of larger Ontario solar projects, the two companies have developed, constructed and operate 200 MWp of solar plants in Chile and have the rights to another 100 MWp of solar plants in Chile, to be constructed before the end of 2022.
CarbonFree and CC&L Infrastructure would like to thank the MNO for its steadfast partnership since 2012.
