Solar farms are large-scale ground mounted photovoltaic systems designed to generate significant amounts of electricity. The open expanse of land used by solar farms allows for solar modules to be installed upon either a tracking system, which swivels the solar panels in unison with the movement of the sun across the sky, or a fixed-tilt system, which keeps the solar panels in a static position. The electricity produced by solar farms is typically purchased by a utility and then delivered into the main power grid for consumption by residential, commercial and industrial customers. The great quantities of electricity produced by solar farms can noticeably decrease demand for other, non-renewable sources of energy.
DAI has developed 13 utility-scale solar farms in Ontario, each of which is 10MW in size. The map below displays the location of each solar farm, and photos of Brockville 1 and Brockville 2 are located beneath the map.
