Canadian Solar Inc. today announced that the company has delivered 10MW of Canadian Solar bifacial PV modules – BiKuCS3U-PB-AG – to Neighborhood Power for four solar power projects near Portland, Oregon.
"When the solar industry was hit with tariffs on solar modules and steel, it seemed that rising landed costs had priced these projects out of the market," said Stephen Gates, President, Neighborhood Power Corporation. "But with the additional power generated by Canadian Solar's bifacial modules, delivered in the quantities and in the timeframe we needed, we were able to make the project economics work and bring these projects online by the end of 2018 as planned."
"Canadian Solar foresaw early on that bifacial technology had the potential to be a game changer in the economics of large-scale solar and set out to be a leader in the development and deployment of bifacial solar modules. Our early deployment with Neighborhood Power in the U.S. is one proof point of our successful execution on that strategy," said Dr. Shawn Qu, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Canadian Solar. "All together, Canadian Solar has delivered and deployed over 200MW of bifacial solar modules for customers and our own solar projects around the world. We pledge to continue innovating and delivering on the breakthrough products and services that will soon make solar PV the most cost-effective source of power generation everywhere."
