San Diego borrows the price of PV at five locations

‘San Diego will use the loan to add photovoltaic solar panels at five locations,’ said Energy Commission Chairman Jackalyne Pfannenstiel. ‘But the City is also planning to invest in energy efficiency, recognizing that it makes little sense to waste the electricity that it generates. That’s why they also plan to upgrade mechanical and lighting systems, improving energy efficiency at over 37 city-owned facilities.’

Thorold Co-Gen LP, a subsidiary of Canadian Northland Power Inc. is, has signed a long-term contract with the Ontario Power Authority (OPA) to supply electricity to consumers in the province from a new, 236 MWe CHP plant to be built at the Abitibi-Consolidated Company of Canada recycled newsprint mill in Thorold, Ontario.
