 Canadian Solar Subsidiary Supplying Panels for Windsor Solar LP Facility

Canadian Solar Inc. says its wholly-owned subsidiary Canadian Solar Solutions Inc. will supply 50 MW of MaxPower CS6X solar panels and 30 medium voltage power stations for the Windsor Solar LP facility.

The project, developed by Samsung Renewable Energy Inc. and Connor, Clark and Lunn Infrastructure (CC&L Infrastructure), is being constructed in Windsor, Ontario.

Windsor Solar is expected to produce about 86,500 MWh of electricity each year, enough to power more than 8,000 Canadian homes.

“Canadian Solar takes great price in supplying solar modules and medium voltage stations to solar projects in Ontario, such as this Windsor solar facility,” said Dr. Shawn Qu, chairman and chief executive officer of Canadian Solar.  “Together with Samsung and CC&L Infrastructure, we continue to make the difference to the Ontario project landscape, including further energizing Southgate Solar later this quarter.”

A long-term power purchase agreement (PPA) is in place with the Independent Electricity System Operator (IESO).

Windsor Solar is expected to displace nearly 60,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions each year throughout the 20-year PPA period.
