Canadian Solar Inc. has dedicated its U.S. regional headquarters by unveiling the company logo sign on the exterior of the office building, located at 3000 Oak Rd. in Walnut Creek, Calif.
The U.S. regional headquarters office brings together three different Canadian Solar businesses into one location: the module and system solutions business; the energy business; and the company’s U.S. solar project development subsidiary, Recurrent Energy.
Located one block from the Pleasant Hill BART station, the new Walnut Creek office provides easy access to San Francisco and the rest of the Bay Area on public transit, lowering the carbon footprint of employees and visitors traveling to the office, the company notes.
“Canadian Solar has been working with our U.S. customers and partners for more than 10 years. We believe in the U.S. solar market and have played a key role in the remarkable development of renewable energy there. Although recent trade policy changes have increased uncertainty in the market, we plan to weather the storm by consolidating and strengthening our operations, as cooperation is a better solution for the industry to develop,” comments Dr. Shawn Qu, chairman and CEO of Canadian Solar. “Canadian Solar is putting its mark on the U.S. solar market with the dedication of this office and logo sign. The United States remains one of the most important solar markets in the world.”
