Minas Basin Pulp and Power Industrial Site, NS, Canada

Project Description

 Solar Suitability Assessment of Minas Basin Pulp and Power Industrial Site, NS, Canada

The purpose of the solar study was to evaluate suitability of the Minas Basin Pulp and Power plant site and industrial buildings for solar energy applications, and to estimate the solar energy potential of the plant. We reviewed climatology data relevant to solar energy generation at this site, assessed the position of the plant buildings from the point of view of solar energy generation, analyzed existing obstructions to sunlight, summarized site survey results and determined solar energy generation potential of the plant. The review included solar thermal generation for industrial applications and for domestic hot water needs, and solar photovoltaic power generation.
