List of the 3 largest solar parks in Canada [2023]

Canada Alberta developers solar parks

This article is based on our list of the largest renewable energy developers in Canada containing general contact details, company details as well as information about the development focus. The list also offers personal contact information.

The total installed solar energy capacity of Canada was reported to have reached almost 4 GW by the end of 2022. To compare: The Netherlands added the same photovoltaic capacity in 2022 alone, although they have less than half the population of Canada and a lot less space. Thus, projects like these on this list are all the more important to increase the solar capacity in Canada.

1) Travers Solar Project in Alberta

Located in Vulcan County, Canada, which is known for its picturesque landscapes, lies the largest solar farm in the entire country. Boasting a remarkable installed generating capacity of 465 MW, this cutting-edge solar farm is a testament to the rapid advancements in renewable energy technology. Sprawling across an area of 3300 acres, covering an area equivalent to over 2,500 football fields, the Travers solar project contributes significantly to reducing the region’s carbon footprint and combating climate change. The developer of this solar project is none other than Greengate Power, a Calgary-based renewable energy company renowned for its commitment to sustainable practices and innovative solutions. The visionary minds at Greengate Power took on this ambitious project, aiming to harness the power of the sun and provide clean electricity to thousands of homes and businesses. When the solar park became operational in the year 2022, this marked a significant milestone in the country’s transition towards a greener future.

2) Brooks Solar Farm

Also located in the beautiful province of Alberta, the Brooks solar farm has an impressive generating capacity of 400 MW, adding to the province’s growing portfolio of clean energy projects. The solar farm spans across an immense area of 3900 acres. Alberta-based developer Solar Krafte Utilities led the project’s development from conception to completion. Just like the first solar project on this list, the Brooks solar farm commenced operations in 2022, marking yet another significant milestone in Canada’s pursuit of sustainable energy solutions.
