Canadian Solar Inc. today announced that the Company supplied 2.8MW of Canadian Solar CSI-28/36-KTL-CT three-phase inverters to the Brar Family Partnerships in Delano, California. Staten Solar 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. 

"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," said Sandipan Bhanot, CEO and President of Staten Solar.

Dr. Shawn Qu, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Canadian Solar, 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."
