Canadian Solar has furthered its foothold in the US market with the opening of its second warehouse facility located in Port Elizabeth, New Jersey. The facility adds PV module storage capacity for the company for the support of its growing customer demands and uses solar energy from its own PV rooftop system. Located within two miles from the port, the facilities location is expected to diminish drayage costs from port to warehouse. The first shipment of modules is anticipated to arrive mid-month.
Dr. Shawn Qu, chairman and chief executive officer of Canadian Solar, remarked, “The opening of our second storage facility underscores the success we are seeing in the important US market. Our new warehouse facility on the East Coast will immediately benefit customers by increasing product availability, shortening product transit times and cutting shipping costs to deliver more competitive pricing.”
