5th Canadian Division Support Base (CDSB) Gagetown Green Power Purchase Agreement (PPA)

The Government of Canada is committed to using 100% clean electricity by 2022 where available, and through the Pan Canadian Framework on Clean Growth and Climate Change, will produce and purchase new renewable electricity that will displace production of the high carbon portion of the electricity grid. The Government of Canada is also targeting industry to reduce greenhouse gases (GHGs) and look to the electricity sector as a priority for this reduction. To respond to this goal, the Department of National Defence proposes to issue a request for proposal for the development of a solar farm to be located at the 5th Canadian Division Support Base (5 CDSB) Gagetown, also known as Base Gagetown. The solar farm is expected to be 5 MW in size and will partially supply the electricity requirements of the Base which has a peak demand of approximately 7.5 MW.
