Solar PV Power Plant in Ontario ( Solar Thermal Magazine ) – GUELPH, Ontario, June, 2013. Canadian Solar Inc, one of the world’s largest solar power companies, today announced that its subsidiary, Canadian Solar Solutions Inc., has entered into an Engineering, Procurement, and Construction (EPC) agreement with Grand Renewable Solar LP, a solar energy project developed by Samsung Renewable Energy Inc.for the construction of a 130 MW utility-scale solar power plant.
This transaction represents the largest EPC contract in our history and underlies the progress we have made in the transformation of our business from a module supplier into a leading total solutions provider with a global footprint and bankable brand.
This 130 MW (dc) utility-scale solar power plant will produce approximately 165,000 MWh of electricity per year and power approximately 13,750 homes, displacing approximately 162,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions over the 20-year period. In addition, the installation will include approximately 440,000 Canadian Solar CS6X high-performance modules, which have been formally tested and certified, validating the quality of the Company’s products. The solar power plant is expected to create several hundred direct and indirect green energy jobs during the development, construction and operation phases of the project. SOURCE Canadian Solar Inc.
