PV manufacturer Canadian Solar is to supply its modules to what will be the largest commercial PV project on the Leeward Islands of St Kitts & Nevis.
Anguilla-based installation firm Comet Solar will develop the 600kW project on behalf of SL Horsford, a trading, service and manufacturing company.
The project will span eight of the company’s buildings, including supermarkets, which have a high refrigeration load.
Chris Mason, Comet Solar's owner, said: “This project is our largest to date, with the challenge of having a remote location, a range of building types from steel buildings to concrete roofs and a mix of British and American electrical systems and voltages.
“As always, we wanted to ensure complete customer satisfaction for the life of the project. Canadian Solar's high quality, warranty and reputation meant we could be confident the client's investment would be protected and we would receive the best in customer support. While the price was also very competitive, warranty and quality were our first concern.”
“We are pleased to be selected by Comet Solar for this exciting installation, which will directly help the business owner to reduce its high electricity bill due to refrigeration, air conditioning and other constant energy demands compounded by the high temperatures in the region,” said Shawn Qu, chairman and CEO of Canadian Solar.
