Canadian Solar supplies solar modules to the largest solar installation in Pennsylvania

Greentech Lead Canada: Canadian Solar has supplied more
than 8 MW of solar modules to groSolar for three utility and commercial
photovoltaic (PV) projects in the United States.

The project includes a 6 MW plant currently under
construction in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania.

The solar plant will supply around 7.5 million kilowatt
hours (kWh) of solar energy per year under a 15-year power purchase agreement
(PPA). The installation was designed to support both farmland preservation and
agricultural soil restoration in Lancaster. When completed, it will be the
largest solar installation in the state of Pennsylvania.

groSolar selected Canadian Solar’s monocrystalline PV
modules for the 1.8 MW solar project, located at the Camden County Municipal
Utility Authority’s (CCMUA) wastewater treatment plant in Camden,

“Canadian Solar is committed to supporting its
valued partners and customers,” said Shawn Qu, CEO of Canadian
Solar.  “We are pleased to be selected as module provider of choice
by groSolar’s experienced team as we continue to expand in the U.S.

The system was designed and built to span open wastewater
treatment tanks, with the solar generated electricity sold by the third party
owner to CCMUA, the project host, in the form of a PPA. Lastly, Canadian
Solar supplied modules for the construction of the 1.5 MW PV system at
Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square, Pa. The combined production of
both plants is expected to produce approximately 4.95 million kWh of clean
solar energy and offset approximately 3,712 tons of carbon emissions per year,
the equivalent of planting 18,562 trees.

“When working on challenging projects, we know we
can depend on Canadian Solar as a partner.  They are a trusted supplier
that we have successfully worked with on many projects and look forward to
collaborating with them on many more in the future,” said Jamie
Resor, CEO of groSolar.

Canadian Solar receives CSA1000V Certification

Recently Canadian Solar announced it has achieved
CSA1000V certification. The certification allows Canadian Solar to more
efficiently meet customer demand for high-voltage applications in the Americas,
while reducing overall system costs.
