Canadian Solar starts construction of solar PV plant in Germany
05 August, 2020
Canadian Solar has started construction on a solar PV plant in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, Northern Germany.
Canadian Solar is responsible for most of the project execution including the design, engineering, procurement and construction, and will be powering the solar plant with over 22,900 pieces of Canadian Solar high-efficiency mono-PERC modules.
GS Solar GmbH & Co. KG, the customer and project owner, will connect the plant to the grid in October 2020 and Canadian Solar will provide the operations and maintenance services.
Once operational, the PV plant will generate approximately 10GWh of clean and reliable solar energy annually, enough to meet the needs of over 3,000 households.
Through the project lifetime, it is expected to displace approximately 90,000 metric tons of CO2-equivalent emissions.
Canadian Solar was founded in 2001 in Canada and is a leading manufacturer of solar photovoltaic modules and provider of solar energy solutions for projects in various stages of development.
Over the past 19 years, Canadian Solar has successfully delivered over 43 GW of premium-quality, solar photovoltaic modules to customers in over 160 countries.
