The project was developed by CSI Solar Power (China) Inc., a subsidiary of Canadian Solar, with Gaochuangte New Energy as the EPC contractor. Construction on the project began in September 2013 and grid connection was completed in December 2013.
According to Dr.
Shawn Qu, chairman and CEO of
Canadian Solar, Inc., the average annual electricity generation from this solar power plant is expected to exceed 11 million KWh. "This project is another good demonstration of
Canadian Solar's success in the development and construction of utility-scale solar power plants on a global basis," he said.
The electricity generated from the plant is expected to displace 8,657 tons of carbon dioxide, 67 tons of sulfur dioxide and 60 tons of nitrogen oxide each year, Dr. Qu added.
