GIS Analysis to Locate Potential Properties for Solar Farms (2007-2010)

2007-2010

Client: POD Generating Group

The CGC assisted POD Generating Group in locating potential sites for a solar farm in Sault Ste. Marie. The CGC used the GIS with supplied criteria to locate potential locations that were of a certain size, appropriate zoning, correct terrain (flat or south facing), sufficient transportation access and close proximity to specific electrical infrastructure. The CGC worked closely with the Sault Ste. Marie Economic Development Corporation, PUC Inc., POD Generating Group and an electrical engineering firm to identify several sites meeting these requirements. In the end POD Generating Group acquired two of the specified sites as determined by the GIS analysis. This analysis was completed in a fraction of the time it would take other communities to respond to a similar request.
