Loblaw Launches Four Rooftop Solar Pilot Projects

LoblawAs part of the company’s effort to reduce its carbon footprint through the use of renewable energy, Loblaw has launched a rooftop solar pilot project at four stores in Ontario –Ajax, Orleans, Toronto and Whitby.

The Canadian food distributor has applied for more than 100 rooftop solar installations.

These applications have been approved by the Ontario Power Authority through the Feed-in Tariff (FIT) program under the Green Energy Act, which is designed to help speed up the development of renewable energy projects.

Based on the success of the initial four pilot projects, Loblaw will evaluate the next phase of roll outs.

The food distributor will work with Northland Power Income Fund to install the photovoltaic panels on the roofs of the four pilot stores.

In February, Craig Hutchison, senior vice president of marketing for  Loblaw Companies discussed the company’s plans to reduce waste and improve sustainability in the food industry.

  1. Great to see the new investment in the Solar industry in Ontario.

    A local fabricator of solar panel mounting systems (also known as racking systems) based in Ontario is helping companies meet the requirements of the FIT (Ontario’s feed-in tariff or FIT Program).

    They are a well known metal fabrication company Samco Solar (http://www.samco-solar.com)

  2. I am very disappointed in Loblaws for taking part in this scam to rape the ratepayers of Ontario with ridiculous subsidies. This is wrong. If an energy source is not viable, the user should pay the extra…not the taxpayer/ratepayer! I will no longer shop in your stores.
