Canadian Solar Inc. will locate its new solar module manufacturing factory at 525 Speedvale Ave. West in Guelph, Ontario. The company expects to commence production early next year. The facility is being developed by Canadian Solar Solutions Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Canadian Solar.
The new facility will be Canadian Solar's first feed-in-tariff domestic content-compliant solar manufacturing facility in Ontario. The new facility will be capable of manufacturing 200 MW of solar modules a year and employ approximately 500 people.
Canadian Solar says the city of Guelph was selected as a result of its commitment to making sustainability the hallmark of its community through its Community Energy Initiative.
