Canadian Solar Signs a 25 MW Module Contract with Distributed Power Africa
DPA and Canadian Solar, one of the world’s largest and foremost solar power companies, have signed an agreement for the supply of PV technology to be used in hybrid product offerings for the African market.
The deal is expected to help DPA to provide top tier PV panels from Canadian Solar in Africa. This is potentially over 60,000 KuMax and HiKu PV panels, which would quite easily construct 50 large industrial solar plants. DPA plans to make Canadian Solar panels their first choice of PV technology in their solutions in sub-Saharan Africa, which initially includes South Africa, Zimbabwe, Kenya, Zambia and Lesotho, with the intention to expand into other key markets. This arrangement will increase the development of solar energy solutions across Africa.
The partnership will ensure zero technology risk for DPA customers because of the long warranties and reliability of the equipment.
