Ubiquity Solar Inc. is one of five new Ontario-based companies sharing a federal government investment of $10-million dollars for clean technology projects announced Monday.

$3.1-million is allocated to Ubiquity which has plans this year for an $11-million pilot plant in TransAlta’s Bluewater Energy Park in Sarnia.

President and CEO Ian MacLellan had said previously he hopes in 2016 to build a $600-million full scale plant with the potential for 500 full time jobs.

Ubiquity Solar uses polysilicon to produce wafers used in the production of solar panels.
