Canadian Solar Inc. announced that it has reached commercial operation on its 19.1MWp Gunma Aramaki solar power plant, located approximately 100km northwest of Tokyo, Japan.
Dr. Shawn Qu, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Canadian Solar Inc. commented, "In 2017, we reached commercial operation on over 100MWp of solar power projects in Japan. Our 19.1MWp Gunma Aramaki project is the first of our two projects in the Gunma prefecture to have reached commercial operation. Today, we have successfully developed solar power plant projects in over 19 prefectures, further enhancing the geographic diversity of the operating portfolio we have developed across Japan."
"This project represents a high-quality growth opportunity for Canadian Solar Infrastructure Fund and this innovative financing structure preserves the option for the Fund to acquire this operational asset in the future," further commented Dr. Shawn Qu.
