Solar City Partnership

The SolarCity Partnership supports information sharing for municipalities, companies and other organizations who have — or are interested in — installing and monitoring large-scale solar energy systems. 

The partnership works with members to monitor installations and to develop best practice recommendations based on independent project evaluations. It is an important forum for knowledge sharing and the identification of technical, financial and policy issues that impact the success of solar energy projects.

The SolarCity Partnership reviews large solar domestic hot water systems, indoor and outdoor solar pool heating, solar air heating systems and photovoltaic installations. Issues relating to procurement, financing and facility operation and maintenance are also addressed.

The SolarCity Partnership was founded in 2008 by the Toronto Atmospheric Fund, the City of Toronto Energy and Waste Management Office, and Toronto and Region Conservation (TRCA), with support from the Federation of Canadian Municipalities Green Municipal Fund. Phase Two of the Partnership, co-ordinated by TRCA, has expanded to include solar facility assessments across the Greater Toronto Area with funding support from the Region of Peel and York Region, and in-kind contributions from various site partners.
