Canadian Solar has connected a 10MW solar project to the Chinese grid. China’s Ningxia Power Group funded and built the ground mounted project which is part of a 50MW solar plant in Ningxia province in northwest China.
The project is expected to generate roughly 13 GWh and reduce CO2 emissions by 18,900 tons a year.
Dr. Shawn Qu, chairman and CEO of Canadian Solar said: “We are actively working to build on this momentum in China and worldwide. As China continues to evolve into a major PV power market over the next few years, Canadian Solar plans to be a major player in driving such growth.”
