Canadian Solar Inc. today announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, Recurrent Energy signed an agreement with Southern Power. Southern Power will acquire a controlling interest in the 200MW Tranquillity Solar Power Project in California. The project, developed by Recurrent Energy, is currently under construction.

Under the terms of the agreement, Southern Power will acquire approximately 51% of the solar generation project. Canadian Solar will retain 49% ownership and contribute its share of the investment required to complete the construction of the project.

The Tranquillity project, covering an area of 1,900 acres in Fresno County, is expected to reach commercial operation in the fourth quarter of 2016 with Signal Energy Constructors as the provider of engineering, procurement, and construction services. The project is expected to generate enough clean solar energy to power approximately 55,000 homes. The electricity and associated renewable energy credits (RECs) generated by the facility will be sold to Southern California Edison under a 15-year power purchase agreement. 

"The Tranquillity project is an attractive opportunity for investors, providing long term stable cash flows," said Dr. Shawn Qu, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Canadian Solar. "This transaction is another example of solar power's move into the mainstream energy mix, and it shows our broader team's ability to attract top notch investors to finance our high-quality projects."
