Canadian Solar has announced the supply of 4 MW of PV Modules for the Spanish Town Estate Solar project, acquired by NRG Energy.
The project is situated in the St. Croix of U.S. Virgin Islands and utilizes 14,400 high-efficiency CS6X-P 305 Polycrystalline PV Modules by Canadian Solar.
The project is expected to produce sufficient electricity to power more than 1,500 homes.
During construction, around 100 direct as well as indirect jobs will be created, pumping approximately $3 million into the local economy.
On purchase of the project, NRG will be the exclusive owner of the plant.
The project is a part of expansion strategy of Canadian Solar in the emerging markets like Central America, South America and The Caribbean.
