Canadian Solar to supply modules to Leeward Islands projects

By Editor


Greentech Lead Canada: Canadian Solar has been selected to supply modules for a landmark solar project in the Leeward Islands.

Comet Solar, an Anguilla based solar installation company, selected Canadian Solar for the installation, which at 600KW is the largest commercial project permitted by the St. Kitts & Nevis Government to date.

S. L. Horsford, a diversified trading company involved in multiple trading, service and manufacturing activities through its various operating departments, subsidiary companies and associated companies contracted Comet Solar for the installation.

The installation will span eight different buildings and various businesses, including supermarkets, which have a high refrigeration load.  Construction has already started.

Chris Mason, Comet Solar’s owner, said, “This project is our largest to date, with the challenge of having a  remote location, a range of building types from steel buildings to concrete roofs and a mix of British and American electrical systems and voltages.”


Canadian Solar module warranties include a 25 year industry leading linear power output warranty, 10 year product warranty on materials and workmanship and 100 percent non-cancellable and immediate warranty insurance coverage by reputable A-rated investment-grade insurance carriers.

Recently Canadian Solar announced it has completed the construction of two utility-scale solar power projects in North Carolina, with a third expected to be completed in mid -July. The projects, named “Lenoir 1, Lenoir 2 and Wilson 1,” total 18 MW and are part of a 15-project portfolio totalling 85MW, being jointly developed with Strata Solar announced earlier this year.
