Officials at Canadian Solar Inc. announce that the company's subsidiary, Canadian Solar Solutions Inc., has signed an agreement to supply Algonquin Power Co. with 10MW of panels for a solar power project in Cornwall, Ontario.

"Importantly, this further demonstrates Canadian Solar's strength and commitment to the Ontario solar market, as we continue to expand our own large and growing project pipeline," says Shawn Qu, CEO of Canadian Solar. 

The utility-scale solar plant is expected to include approximately 42,000 Canadian Solar CS6X high performance modules, which have been awarded key international certifications attesting to the rigors of their formal quality control inspections and testing.

Canadian Solar modules are covered by a 10-year warranty on materials and workmanship, along with a 25-year linear power output performance guarantee. In addition, the terms of Canadian Solar's product and performance warranty are backed by a third-party insurance policy that is underwritten by investment grade insurance companies, ensuring a safe investment for developers, investors, and project owners.

Construction is scheduled to begin in the second quarter of 2013, with the project expected to be fully operational by the fourth quarter of 2013.
