Solar Photovoltaics

Overall, there were 289 MWDC of solar photovoltaic (PV) capacity installed in Canada in 2011 representing over 335 gigawatt-hours (GWh) of power generation on an annual basis. 

The current state of the PV market throughout Canada including incentives, an update on installations in 2011, a description of the supply chain, key manufacturers, economic impacts, workforce capability and the state of R&D initiatives in Canada can be found in the "Sector Profile for Solar Photovoltaics in Canada" published by Natural Resources Canada's CanMET Energy.
