The Metis Nation of Ontario (MNO) Peterborough and District Wapiti Métis Council (PDWMC) had the opportunity to tour the Calvary Church rooftop solar project located in their community on Lansdowne Street West in Peterborough.

This rooftop solar project is one of 50 projects in Ontario currently owned by the MNO, in partnership with BrightRoof Solar LP.

CarbonFree Technology Vice-President of Project Development Ven Seshadri and Project Development Manager Syd Healey provided the MNO Council with a guided tour of the facility on a beautiful sunny day and answered questions. According to Vice-President Seshadri, the Calvary Church solar facility is a 190 kilowatt solar power system that can produce enough power to service more than 25 homes. It was officially connected to the grid in August 2015.

The MNO PDWMC was pleased to see the efforts and values of the MNO’s long term goals to move forward with clean technology and reduce their carbon footprint. They were also very appreciative to have the opportunity to tour this facility and to learn about the technology.
