Lakeshore Group advises First Solar on its initial project approved under Ontario’s REA Program

Solar farm developer and thin film panel manufacturer First Solar has completed a 40 megawatt solar development in St. Clair, Ontario Canada. The development is the first large-scale photovoltaic project to be approved under Ontario’s Renewable Energy Approval (REA) program.

The Lakeshore Group was First Solar’s lead land development and permit consultants for the St Clair project which produces enough clean energy to power approximately 6,440 homes.

The Lakeshore Group has an extensive and successful track record in obtaining renewable energy project approvals. We were the lead consultants for what is currently the largest photovoltaic project in the world at 80 megawatts generated from 950 acres of land in the City of Sarnia, Canada. The Lakeshore Group is also working as lead development and permit consultants for other solar projects which are nearing receipt of REA approvals.
