Canadian Solar Inc. announced that it has been awarded a Victorian government support agreement for its greenfield 100MWac Carwarp Solar Project in Australia. 

Canadian Solar plans to commence construction of the project in Q1 2019 and achieve commercial operation in Q1 2020. The solar system will generate 267,000 MWh of electricity every year, equivalent to powering approximately 48,000 homes and reducing greenhouse emissions by 288,000 metric tonnes of greenhouse gases.

"We are pleased to secure the prestigious award from the Victorian Government for the Carwarp Solar Project," commented Dr. Shawn Qu, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Canadian Solar. "The Victorian Renewable Energy Auction Scheme is a highly competitive tender process and by leveraging our 10-year track record in global project development and execution, we can assist the Victorian Government to reach its renewable energy generation targets."
