Energy-Related DesignBuildSM Services

Leidos Canada's DesignBuild services provide a seamless union of architecture, engineering, and construction of critical infrastructure. Our teamwork and focus on client objectives result in more innovative, cost-effective and timely project completion than typically result from traditional methods.

Independent Engineering for Ontario Solar Projects

Since the start of the Ontario Power Authority (OPA) Feed-In Tariff (FIT) program, Leidos has been extensively involved as an Independent Engineer (IE) in a wide range of photovoltaic (PV) projects in Ontario. Our Ottawa team possesses unparalleled, on-the-ground Ontario PV experience dating back more than 30 years, including direct familiarity with nearly every OPA-compliant PV module and inverter manufacturer.

With several Professional Engineers registered in Ontario and trained in solar technology, Leidos Canada can competently complete Exhibit G "Form of Independent Engineer's Certificate re. Commercial Operation" for owners or developers of OPA rooftop or ground mounted FIT projects. In addition to the OPA FIT project IE services, Leidos' solar team has extensive experience in system performance monitoring and diagnostics to identify potential opportunities for performance improvements.

Renewable Energy and Climate Change Services

Leidos Canada's renewable energy and climate change program is dedicated to the development of innovative renewable energy solutions and the realization of climate change mitigation measures in Canada.

The program's mandate is to provide the interested Canadian public and stakeholders alternate energy solutions to reduce our greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. This will help contribute to better air quality and a cleaner environment as well as reducing our society's environmental footprint.

  • Project management of sophisticated renewable energy demonstration projects
  • R&D investment for investigation of new uses for solar thermal energy

Leidos Canada: Innovative Solar Solutions that Are Making a Difference

  • Commercial rooftop PV systems. Leidos Canada has in-depth experience in multiple PV technologies, including various thin films, crystalline silicon, concentrating PV, cylindrical modules and roof membrane PV.
  • Largest solar-heated community in North America. Leidos Canada was the lead consultant and project manager for the initial feasibility study, design and construction for an enclave of 52 single-family homes in Okotoks, Alberta, that captures the solar energy in the summer, stores this energy and uses it in the winter for home heating. These homes are expected to generate five tonnes less in GHG emissions per year when compared to a conventional home.
  • Solar Photovoltaic systems. Leidos Canada has designed and installed a number of solar PV systems in cottage communities and homes located in remote locations, as well as grid-connected commercial facilities in urban areas. Benefits for the building owner are power independence, reliability and reduced power consumption.
  • Underground thermal energy storage. Leidos Canada has conducted a number of feasibility studies and is currently developing several large-scale projects utilizing the earth to store solar thermal energy for more efficient management of our energy resources. Potential benefits include reduced GHG emissions, less fossil fuel consumption and a shift in peak electrical load from summer to winter.
  • Solar detoxification of contaminated groundwater. Leidos Canada has developed and tested a system that will use the sun's rays to destroy dangerous contaminants in groundwater. This system is based on a technology that combines solar radiation and a catalyst to produce hydroxyl radicals, which then break down organic contaminants such as benzene and toluene, carcinogens that are frequently found in groundwater contaminated by a gasoline storage tank leak.
