Canadian Solar has announced that it will supply 2.8MW three-phase inverters to Brar Family Partnerships in Delano, California.
Staten Solar, a Silicon-Valley based EPC company, provided engineering, procurement, and construction services for Brar Farm's solar PV installation.
The environmental benefits from this solar system are significant.
Not only will the Brar Farm's solar PV System produce enough electricity to power approximately 260 homes for a year, the installation is also expected to eliminate 2,500 metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions annually, equivalent to taking 500 cars off the road for one year.
Staten Solar, CEO and president, Sandipan Bhanot said: "By installing the world's first levee mount Solar PV systems along the Brar Farm's irrigation levees, Staten Solar reduced the use of valuable, productive crop land by up to 30% vs. traditional solar PV systems.
The solar energy system will save the client about $600,000 annually, in electricity bills."
Canadian Solar, chairman and chief executive officer Dr. Shawn Qu commented: "With the continued growth and momentum of solar within California, the inclusion of three-phase inverters as part of our product portfolio allows us to expand our addressable market while providing more value to our customers in the commercial solar segment.
"By collaborating together with prominent clean tech firms such as Staten Solar, we strive to make our corporate vision a reality through each solar installation in which we take part."
