GP Joule breaks ground on 100 MW Canadian solar portfolio


GP Joule North America, a unit of GP Jould GmbH, broke ground on a 106 MW solar portfolio for Concord Pacific, one of Canada’s largest community builders.

GP Joule’s experience building projects in challenging climates with durable technology that provides a lower cost of energy were key drivers in the company being awarded the three PV projects. Each 35 MW installation must be built to sustain wind speeds at 140 kilometers per hour (87 mph).

All three projects are to be built within one hour of Lethbridge, Alberta, south of Calgary. And each will use GP Joule’s Phlegon fixed-tilt racking system.

Around 150 skilled and professional trade workers will be hired for construction, with about 60% likely from the fossil fuel industry. And some of the workforce will come from the the Athabasca Chipewyan First Nation Native American tribe.

Concord Pacific has a renewable energy portfolio that includes solar power plants operating in Ontario and more than 500 MW of renewable energy projects in the development pipeline.
