Sault Ste. Marie Set to Become a Solar City

Sault Ste Marie is poised to become home to one of Ontario’s largest solar farms, thanks to the latest contracts signed under the province’s Standard Offer Program.

It will join a 60 MW project planned in Sarnia as one of the largest solar power generating stations planned in Canada.
