September 2, 2014 - Canadian Solar Inc. today announced that it supplied Conti / SunDurance with 11MW of solar modules during the second quarter of 2014.
For this 11MW order, Canadian Solar delivered to the Conti Group in total 37,202 pieces of CS6X solar modules in 6 x 12 cell matrix with UL 1000V certificate. During their 25 year life span, these modules will turn solar energy into 360,000MWh of electricity, and reduce CO2 emissions by 67,000 tons, the equivalent to taking 11,800 cars off of the roads; or equivalent to creating a forest of 6,200 hectares with 237,000 trees.
Matthew Skidmore, Vice President at Conti, commented, "We partner with sophisticated solar developers, solar asset owners and electrical utilities to design and build large scale projects, and are very excited to work with Canadian Solar on this opportunity."
"We are pleased to be selected to supply our PV modules to Conti, a world leading EPC provider. We are looking forward to working with Conti in the future. I am confident that Canadian Solar's global leadership, proven track record, and well-known brand name will continue to make us a partner of choice in powering key solar installations worldwide," said Dr. Shawn Qu, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Canadian Solar.
