“Phoventus was a pleasure to work with on the preliminary design of two utility scale ground-mounted solar projects in western Canada. Leveraging their significant industry experience, they provided quality project layouts and energy resource assessments on time and budget. We welcome the opportunity to work with Phoventus soon again. Thanks for all your great work!”
