Enbridge has a big possession portfolio in solar energy, which might generate electrical energy with no emissions, no waste manufacturing, and no water use.
We have now commissioned three photo voltaic self-power tasks, aimed toward offsetting the facility consumption of our oil and gasoline transmission operations. The portfolio now consists of the two.3-megawatt (MW) Lambertville Photo voltaic Mission in New Jersey, the ten.5 MW Alberta Photo voltaic One undertaking, and the two.5 MW Heidlersburg Photo voltaic undertaking, which entered operation in Pennsylvania in Could 2021.
We have now additionally began building on 10 extra photo voltaic self-power tasks in Wisconsin, Illinois, Pennsylvania, Kentucky, Ohio and Minnesota, collectively price greater than 97 MW of emissions-free producing capability. These tasks will offset the facility wants on our liquids and pure gasoline pipeline rights-of-way.
Enbridge first entered the photo voltaic sector with the 80 MW Sarnia Photo voltaic undertaking – one of many largest working photovoltaic amenities in Canada – in 2008. The undertaking is one among three Ontario photo voltaic tasks through which Enbridge holds an fairness stake.
In 2012, we entered the U.S. photo voltaic vitality market with our acquisition of the 52 MW Silver State North, the primary photo voltaic undertaking constructed on U.S. public lands. Enbridge has a 51% possession curiosity in Silver State North, which is situated in Clark County, Nevada and generates sufficient emission-free vitality to serve the wants of greater than 11,500 properties.
Sustainability at Enbridge

Enbridge’s sustainability targets
Our new commitments symbolize the subsequent stage of our evolution to make sure we’re positioned to develop Enbridge sustainably for many years to come back.
Key details about our solar energy investments:
- 190 MW: Emission-free energy capability from our photo voltaic investments (based mostly on internet technology figures, which exclude our companions’ stake within the tasks).
- 41,788: Variety of properties that our photo voltaic investments can energy every year (based mostly on internet technology figures, which exclude our companions’ stake within the tasks).
