|RES Canada, founded in 2003, is based in Montréal, Quebec with a construction office in Ontario. A wholly-owned subsidiary of RES Ltd., RES Canada's primary focus is on third-party construction of wind, solar, and transmission projects.|
RES Canada offers a full range of services including assistance with renewable energy project development, resource measurement and analysis, permitting, financial modeling, technology selection, electrical design, civil engineering, finance, EPC and BOP/BOS construction, operations and maintenance.
RES Canada is well-positioned to satisfy local content requirements at the First Nation, provincial, and municipal level. We have successfully met stringent domestic content requirements in Quebec and Ontario, as well as First Nation expectations for participation during project construction in Ontario.
Significant RES Canada achievements include:
- Selection by Hydro-Quebec for 740 megawatts of projects as a member of the Cartier consortium in the utility's first 1,000 megawatt tender in 2005.
- Selection by Hydro-Quebec for 954 megawatts of projects as a member of the St. Laurent Energies consortium in 2008 in the utility's second 2,000 megawatt tender. RES Canada will construct all of these projects and is a development partner in this consortium.
- Selection by the Ontario Power Authority for two 99 megawatt projects in 2009 under its RES III Request for Proposals (the Talbot & Greenwich wind farms). RES Canada developed, constructed, and is currently operating both wind farms. These projects began construction in 2010, and became operational in Q1 2011.
- Completion of the first solar project under the Ontario FIT program. The 10 megawatt Rutley Solar project began commercial operation in Q2 2012.
