Canadian Solar modules to power Honduras solar projects

Canadian Solar has executed a sales contract to supply photovoltaic modules to two utility scale projects totaling 146.4 MWp in Honduras.

These two projects, entitled Project Developer/EPC Solar Power S.A. de C.V. (SOPOSA) and Companía Hondurena de Energia Solar S.A. de C.V. (COHESSA), will be constructed in Honduras.

The construction will begin in December 2014 and will be completed by March 2015. Each project will have a 73.2 MWp capacity, carrying the total to 146.4 MWp. The energy produced will be corresponding to the power needed for 45,000 homes in Honduras.


These two projects signify a milestone for SOPOSA and COHESSA, with a vision of developing solar projects that continue the highest standards of sustainable development.

Since 2010, Canadian Solar’s PV modules have continuosly been ranked at the top of the PVUSA Test Conditions (PTC) Ratings, maintaining their leadership position in the market.

For the fourth year in a row, Canadian Solar has achieved top results on the Potential Induced Degradation (PID) test results.

In another initiative, Canadian Solar has announced that it supplied Conti / SunDurance with 10 MW of solar modules during the third quarter of 2014.

It has delivered a total of 33,792 pieces of CS6X solar modules in 6 x 12 cell matrix with UL 1000V certificate.
