published: 2014-08-06 16:13

Canadian Solar supplied 4 MW of PV Modules for the Spanish Town Estate Solar project, recently acquired by NRG Energy. The project is located in St. Croix, in the U.S. Virgin Islands and utilizes 14,400 high-efficiency Canadian Solar Polycrystalline PV Modules.

According to NRG, construction of the Spanish Town Estate Solar project began in April of 2014 and is expected to generate enough electricity to power more than 1,500 homes. It is expected to create nearly 100 jobs during construction and to inject a total of approximately $3 million into the local economy. With the purchase of the project, NRG, through its subsidiaries, will be the sole owner of the facility.

Canadian Solar is continuing to expand its presence in the emerging markets like Central America, South America and The Caribbean. Its modules are covered by a 10-year warranty on materials and workmanship, along with a 25 year linear power output performance guarantee. In addition, Canadian Solar's products and performance warranties are backed by a third-party insurance policy that is underwritten by investment grade insurance companies.

"Canadian Solar has expanded its footprint with local offices and local staff based in Panama, Mexico, and Brazil and has supplied modules for some of the region's largest PV projects," said Dr. Shawn Qu, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of the company.
