Italian solar farm completed with Canadian solar modules

Ontario, June 7, 2010 — Canadian Solar completed and commissioned a solar farm in Umbria in the Italian town of Narni.

The 1 MW Solarta installation consists of 4,000 Canadian Solar CS6P 230-Watt modules capable of producing renewable energy with an annual output of 1.18 MWh, and 16,000 tons of reduction in carbon emissions.

The installation was completed by Canadian Solar‘s partner GE Progetti & 3i on a two-hectare rural area without the use of reinforced cement in an effort to be environmentally friendly and to maintain the aesthetics of the landscape.

The Solarta project is hooked up to the local electrical network and all the energy produced will be delivered to the grid. This solar plant demonstrates how photovoltaic energy systems can be installed with full respects to the environment, but also as highly profitable investment in energy production.

The photovoltaic panels from the Canadian company occupy 50 percent of the area and are arranged geometrically in multiple rows. In order to get the most out of the irradiation, the solutions adopted by Solarta are tilted at 28 degrees in order to guarantee greater exposure to direct rays of the sun.

“GE Progetti & 3i relies on Canadian Solar as a trusted partner given its high quality and high performance products, which are ideal for large installations like this one,” says Leonardo Pozzoli, Commercial Director Renewable Energy Department of GE Progetti & 3i. “Moreover, Canadian Solar’s strong global reputation is helpful when working with customers seeking bank support for profitable PV installments.”

The CS6P from Canadian Solar are large size standard modules (H 1638 x L 982 x P 40 mm) used in systems connected to the grid, characterized by 60 solar cells capable of delivering high energy conversion capacity, even when light conditions are poor.
