The three-phase commercial system is the largest rooftop solar PV array as part of the province's Feed-in-Tariff (FIT) programme. Sentinel Solar, based in Vaughan, Ontario, managed the installation of over 9,000 Enphase M215 microinverters and Jinko solar modules mounted to an existing greenhouse building.
The solar array at Vine Fresh Produce Ltd, a southern Ontario greenhouse operator, replaces part of the roof structure of a large greenhouse facility, leaving the underside of each solar module exposed underneath. This gives Sentinel and its customer easy access to each module and microinverter without having to navigate on top of a roof, allowing for simplified maintenance of the system.
"We have been fortunate to represent Enphase from the start in the Canadian market," said Adam Webb, president of Sentinel Solar. "By designing the system around Enphase we were able to complete the project on time and on budget."
To date, Enphase has shipped over 3.7 million microinverters and is selling in eleven countries across Europe, North America and Asia Pacific.
