Canadian Solar Powers Continental Headquarters in Australia with a 100 kW System.


Continental Pty Ltd is responsible for the manufacturing and engineering of sophisticated automotive and marine products for supply to manufactures both locally and overseas and has received a number of prestigious environmental and supplier awards including a 2005 Gold Award for Supplier Excellence. In 2013, in keeping with its values, Continental Pty Ltd engaged Canadian Solar (Australia) to provide an EPC solar power solution for its HQ offices in Bundoora, Victoria.

Responsible for the project design, equipment procurement, installation and commissioning of the system, Canadian Solar (Australia) provided high quality CS6P-P 250 W solar panels with a total installed capacity of 100 kW DC. Each panel is a robust solar module with 60 solar cells, well-suited to on-grid solar applications. Meticulous design and production techniques ensure high yield and long-term performance. In addition, given Melbourne’s variable weather conditions the CS6P panels represented an excellent solution due to their outstanding performance at low irradiance and high-energy yield at low NOCT.

The project was completed in 3 weeks. Our market-leading 10-year product warranty, together with our 25 year linear performance insurance-backed warranty provide Continental Pty Ltd with total confidence in its renewable energy production solution – one that will provide a return on investment spanning decades.

Businesses like Continental Pty Ltd chose Canadian Solar for our world-renown technical expertise, our solid knowledge and expertise in EPC project financing and operation, the financial well-being of our company, the high quality of our products, our market leading product and performance warranties and the Canadian Solar commitment to long-term business sustainability.
