Since becoming a public company, SolarBank has secured a US$41 million contract with with Honeywell International for three community solar projects, C$36 million in engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contracts for three separate BESS projects in Ontario, and an US$11.35 million EPC contract for a 5.9 MW community solar project in New York.

SolarBank boasts a potential development pipeline of more than 1 GW and has developed projects with a combined capacity of more than 70 MW and a value in excess of C$100 million. The vertically integrated company, from origination to delivery, is well-positioned to deliver on this potential because of its more than 10 years of experience in North America’s US$80 billion solar market, including the design and construction of more than 100 solar power plants, a management team with more than a century of combined experience, and a tailwind in global renewable energy consumption expected to grow from 25 per cent in 2018 to 90 per cent by 2050.

“I am incredibly proud of our team and the corporate-wide achievements over the seven months from the completion of the IPO,” Richard Lu, CEO of SolarBank, said in a statement. “The company has excelled in every area of its core business, including site origination, interconnection, permitting, engineering, procurement, construction and operation and maintenance. With our footprint widening in Canada and the U.S., I anticipate our growth trends to continue and greatly look forward to delivering success for the balance of 2023 and beyond.”

SolarBank is an independent renewable and clean energy project developer and owner focused on distributed and community solar projects in Canada and the United States.
