Pukaskwa Solar Energy was founded in July of 2009. Throughout that summer, Pukaskwa attended a series of stakeholder meetings as part of the development of the OPA's FIT and MicroFIT programs. With the launching of these programs on October 1st 2009, Pukaskwa was prepared to take advantage of the generous MicroFIT ground mount rates. As the OPA implemented changes to the ground mount pricing, Pukaskwa also implemented changes to better reflect the marketplace.

Along with several consulting contracts with local Municipalities, Pukaskwa will also develop, own and operate at least 110kW of both ground and roof mount solar. With a combination of MicroFIT ground mounts under the original pricing, and FIT projects under the current pricing, Pukaskwa will continue to generate positive cash flow for the next 20+ years .
