Canadian Solar Solutions Inc. has entered into an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) agreement with Kingston Solar LP to build a 140 MW solar energy farm in Ontario.
The Kingston solar farm, developed by Samsung Renewable Energy Inc., will include more than 464,000 Canadian Solar Maxpower CS6X modules. When complete, the array is expected to produce approximately 173 GWh of electricity per year. Construction on the project is expected to begin in the third quarter of the year and be operational in the third quarter of 2015.
Kingston represents Phase II of Samsung's 300 MW solar development program in Ontario. Phase I of the program was the 130 MW Grand Renewable Energy Park in Haldimand County, announced in June 2013.
