The SMSL said that the supply deal with EDF over the next five years included its BiHiKu and HiKu modules that would be deployed in projects in the US, Canada, and Mexico.

‘Solar Module Super League’ (SMSL) member, Canadian Solar has secured its largest single multi-year PV module supply agreement, totalling 1.8GW, with EDF Renewables North America.

The SMSL said that the supply deal with EDF over the next five years included its BiHiKu (Bifacial) and HiKu modules that would be deployed in projects in the US, Canada, and Mexico.

Tristan Grimbert, president and CEO of EDF Renewables North America said, “EDF Renewables North America is pleased to announce this substantial module supply agreement with Canadian Solar Inc. The agreement demonstrates our confidence in the bifacial module technology to support our robust pipeline of contracted projects over the next five years.”

Dr. Shawn Qu, chairman and CEO of Canadian Solar said, “As the US market recovers from the uncertainties brought by Section 201 tariffs and rushes to meet the step-down of the Investment Tax Credit deadline, we are seeing a significant rebound of demand in the US solar market, which impacts module supply across the entire region. This contract continues to strengthen the global partnership between EDF Renewables and Canadian Solar.”

Canadian Solar added that with the EDF supply deal, the company had PV module supply contracts totalling over 3GW in the North American market through 2023.
