Canadian Solar 44MW NC win

Canadian Solar has won a 44MW supply deal to equip seven PV plants in the US state of North Carolina.

Canadian Solar will deliver modules to affiliates of developer Entropy, which will build the arrays.

The projects are expected to enter service this year.

Canadian Solar – which carries out most of its production in China – has now scored two orders from Entropy this year.

The developer said: "We are particularly pleased that we were able to consummate this deal at a fair price even after the imposition of new duties on solar products.

“Continued commitment to the US market by low-cost manufacturers such as Canadian Solar, in spite of the challenges, is encouraging and ultimately essential for the continued deployment of low cost solar energy in the US.”
