A Winnipeg company specializing in solar energy is competing for a national award for their recent efforts at FortWhyte Alive.

Sycamore Energy is nominated for solar developer of the year at the Canadian Solar Industries Game Changer Awards.

“This nomination highlights not only the leading role Sycamore Energy has taken in solar installations in Manitoba, but also our commitment to finding innovative, cost-effective and environmentally responsible solutions for our customers,” said Justin Phillips, Sycamore Energy president.

Sycamore Energy installed 168 solar panels and related infrastructure at FortWhyte earlier this fall. It’s the largest soal installation in Winnipeg at 57 kilowatts and provides 50 percent of the net annual energy requirements of FortWhyte Alive’s farm site

The project qualified for Manitoba Hydro’s Power Smart rebate, which reduced the overall cost by approximately 25 percent.

The Canadian Solar Industries 2017 Game Changer Awards will be presented December 5 in Toronto.
