Honorable Mentions: The Sarnia Solar Project, owned by Enbridge Inc., Sarnia, Ontario, Canada

Enbridge entered into an agreement with First Solar in 2009 to expand the facility from 20 MW to 80 MW. The new project uses about 1.3 million First Solar thin-film solar modules and was built under a fixed-price engineering, procurement and construction contract.

Enbridge and First Solar consulted with local First Nations and landowners on their various concerns, and the company’s Neutral Footprint requires them to maintain an environmental footprint at January 2009 levels when construction began, which includes planting a tree for every tree removed, conserving an acre for every acre of natural habitat impacted and generating a kilowatt of renewable energy for every kilowatt of energy the operations used. As a result, Enbridge restored 950 acres of land the project occupies and generates more than 120,000 megawatt-hours of renewable energy.
