Ray of Light - New Large Scale Solar Initiative

(Theme 2 – Energy)

Organization: Energy Ottawa and partner City of Ottawa

Project Start Date: Sept 201620 years


Energy Ottawa, a subsidiary of Hydro Ottawa, and the City of Ottawa announce their solar rooftop installation project. The Jim Durrell Recreation Centre on Walkley Road is one of eight large installation projects being planned on municipal buildings, including arenas, pools and city garages. These installs will provide the city with an increase in its renewable generation and reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 41,382 metric tonnes over the 20-year term.

Other facilities include:
◦Ray Friel Complex on Tenth Line Road,
◦Kanata Recreation Complex on Charlie Rogers Place,
◦Walter Baker Sports Centre on Malvern Drive,
◦François Dupuis Recreation Centre on Portobello Boulevard,
◦Operations Garage on Conroy Road,
◦Articulated Bus Garage on Industrial Avenue,
◦Operations Garage on Iber Road.

Once all eight solar projects are complete, the systems are expected to generate nearly 3,000,000 kWh/year; the equivalent of removing more than 300 homes from the grid annually.
