Canada has plentiful solar energy resources, with the most extensive resources being found in southern Ontario, Quebec and the Prairies.
Thanks to the Ontario FIT program, is the home of the largest solar farm in the world (as of October 2010). Located in Sarnia, Ontario, the 80 megawatt Sarnia Photovoltaic Power Plant can power more than 12,000 homes.
Ontario may become the leading Canada market for solar PV in North America in 2011, installing more than 400 MW of solar power. This would be nearly double that installed by California in 2010. With contracts on the books, Ontario is expected to reach 2,650 MW of solar PV by 2015.
