OTTAWA, Ont. — Household goods mover Wills Transfer has announced it is installing rooftop solar power systems at three of its Ontario warehouse facilities.
The company will be installing the systems, developed by Enfinity Canada, at warehouses in Ottawa, Brockville and Perth.
The total capacity will be 1.308 MWp (megawatt peak), according to the company. That’s enough to produce about 1.5 million kilowatt hours (KwH) of energy per year, enough to power the needs of more than 125 homes, the companies announced. Brent Ellis, director of commercial warehouses for Wills Transfer, says the project is proof of the company’s commitment to a green supply chain.
“Energy efficiency and reduction of greenhouse gases are key business and environmental strategies for Wills Transfer, and we continue to work to make them an integral part of our operations,” said Ellis. “The Enfinity model will enable us to implement sustainable energy production without investment. Enfinity’s demonstrated professionalism and expertise additionally provides us with confidence in the long-term safety and security of our facilities.”
Solar array design and development is currently underway for the three facilities with construction slated to begin early next year.
