Canadian Solar is partnering with Signal Energy for an EPC and module supply contract for ESCO Pacific's 175MW Finley Solar Farm in New South Wales, Australia.

The solar plant will be built on approximately 404 hectares of grazing, crop and irrigated lands near Finley. Over 490,000 of Canadian Solar's 1500V high efficiency KuMax modules (CS3U-P) will be installed on single-axis solar tracking systems.  When completed, it will produce enough electricity to meet the needs of more than 90,000 NSW homes.

Construction of the project began in December 2018 and is expected to complete in October 2019.

Dr. Shawn Qu, chairman and CEO of Canadian Solar, said: “We are delighted to be selected by ESCO Pacific to provide EPC services together with Signal Energy and to supply our 1500V crystalline module to this large-scale solar power plant. This partnership further expands our presence and solidifies our competitive position in Australia. We are committed to providing customers in Australia and around the world with access to clean, affordable and reliable solar energy.”

“We are excited about establishing ourselves in the Australian renewable energy market,” said Greg Pawson, president of Signal Energy. “Signal Energy has had great success in the United States by creating value for our customers through optimization and execution of their solar projects, and leveraging our experience internationally has proven to make a lot of sense.”
