Canadian Solar to Supply 60 MWp of PV Modules and Power Stations for Windsor Solar Project to Samsung and Connor, Clark & Lunn
Canadian Solar Inc., one of the world’s largest solar power companies, recently announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, Canadian Solar Solutions Inc., has secured contracts to supply 50 MW AC (60 MW DC) of MaxPower CS6X Ontario-made solar panels and 30 medium voltage power stations for the Windsor Solar LP facility. This utility-scale solar project, developed by Samsung Renewable Energy Inc. (“Samsung”) and Connor, Clark and Lunn Infrastructure (“CC&L Infrastructure”), will be built in the City of Windsor, Ontario.
The power plant is expected to produce approximately 86,500 MWh of electricity per year, sufficient to power approximately 8,204 Canadian homes. It will also contribute to a greener environment by displacing approximately 59,646 metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions annually over the 20-year period of the power purchase agreement with the IESO.
Dr. Shawn Qu, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Canadian Solar, commented, “Canadian Solar takes great pride in supplying solar modules and medium voltage stations to solar projects in Ontario, such as this Windsor solar facility. 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.”
