Canadian Solar Completes the Construction of Brockville 1.


In June of 2013, Canadian Solar Solutions Inc. completed and closed the sale of Brockville 1, a 10 megawatt AC solar power plant to TransCanada Corporation.  The Brockville 1 solar power plant is located in the city of Brockville in Eastern Ontario and is the first of nine solar power plants, totaling 86 megawatts AC that Canadian Solar Solutions has agreed to build and sell to TransCanada.  Canadian Solar provided engineering, procurement and construction ("EPC") services for Brockville 1 as well as other eight projects. All the solar PV modules used in the portfolio were manufactured at Canadian Solar's manufacturing facility in Guelph, Ontario, Canada, which employs over 1,000 people.

"We are delighted to close the sale of our first project with TransCanada, one of North America's most successful energy infrastructure companies, which has chosen to partner with Canadian Solar to grow their emission-less energy portfolio and expand into the solar power generation space," commented Dr. Shawn Qu, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Canadian Solar Inc.
