Canadian Solar has signed an agreement with Entropy Solar Integrators to supply modules for 44MW solar farms in North Carolina, US.
The company will supply its Solar CS6X-P PV module series to Entropy, which is building seven farms in the state this year.
The projects are expected to generate more than 1.1 million kWh of renewable energy over the next 20 years, which can power more than 130,000 homes.
Entropy managing partner Lewis Reynolds said: "Entropy has a strong partnership with Canadian Solar and this is our second major order with them for projects that will enter service this year.
"Continued commitment to the US market by low-cost manufacturers such as Canadian Solar, in spite of the challenges, is encouraging and ultimately essential for the continued deployment of low cost solar energy in the US."
Covered by a ten-year warranty on materials, the Canadian Solar modules provide a 25-year linear power output performance guarantee supported by third-party insurance policy, which is underwritten by insurance companies.
CSI Americas operation general manager Thomas Koerner said: "We are privileged to be a part of North Carolina’s solar success story, as North American companies continue to invest in sustainable development. Partnerships with organisations such as Entropy showcase Canadian Solar’s ability to continue serving the booming US market.
"Generating local jobs to design, construct and finance these PV projects, while increasing the use of clean and renewable energies, are part of our dedication to making a solar-powered America a reality."
