PPFD was founded in 1986, Promotional Products Fulfillment & Distribution Ltd (PPFD) has a 125,000 square foot state-of-the-art warehouse facility custom designed and built 2001 in the Greater Toronto area. This building is continually being enhanced with the latest equipment and storage systems. PPFD is committed to conserving energy at their facility, their goal is to respect the planet and utilize renewable resources. Sustainability is important in making sure that we have and will continue to have the water, materials and resources to protect human health and our environment. The roof space of this modern building is 95,000 square feet resulting in a PV system capacity of 500kw ac. For this plant design the Heliene model HEE300MA78 was chosen. This is a mono-crystalline panel consisting of 72 solar cells with a dimension of approximately 1 meter by 2 meters. This panel is rated for an output of 300 watts at Standard Test Conditions (STC). At Global Point Energy we chose this panel for its relatively high efficiency and being compliant with the Ontario content requirement for FIT projects.
Global Point Energy began its first Solar experience in 2005 preparing a shovel ready utility scale 10Mw Solar Farm project for the Peterborough Utilities Commission. This became the first municipally owned solar farm in Canada. GPE has established itself as a leader in the renewable energy sector with turn-key projects in Solar in Canada. The experience is built on 54Mw’s of installation and navigation for their clients from beginning to end of the Ontario FIT and MicroFIT programs. An established track record of successful contracts and organic growth. The early experience started with the first installs of Thermal Hot Water systems for domestic hot water, pool heating and space heating. As an Engineer-Procure-Construct (EPC) contractor GPE has over 40 installations of Thermal operating in Ontario. From that when the PV program was introduced spawned a large referral business from our happy Thermal client base into the successful company we are today. With over 100 PV installs in multiple sizes from 10kw to 500kw’s in size we are proud that 70% of our new business has been based on referrals from taking care of the clients in a friendly and professional manor. We have endorsements from Whitby Hydro on the PPFD project and financial institutes we have worked with like Royal Bank of Cda, Farm Credit Corporation and local Credit Unions. As a bondable company GPE clients can feel confident their projects will be taken care at the highest level as we look after their investment into the program.
