The town of Narni, in Umbria, Italy has seen the completion and commissioning of Solarta, a 1MW solar farm. The installation, equipped with 4,000 of Canadian Solar’s CS6P 230W modules, was completed by the company’s partner GE Progetti & 3i on a two-hectare rural area.
The installation will generate an output of approximately 1.18MWh of electricity, which will be fed into the local grid. Approximately 50% of the two-hectare area is taken up by the PV panels, which have been arranged geometrically in multiple rows to maximise the area’s potential. Canadian Solar’s module rating is guaranteed for 25 years, and the modules themselves for six years.
“Italy remains one of the world’s fastest growing, most attractive solar markets. Canadian Solar has been a leader in Italy, with this latest installation underscoring our commitment to actively participating in the further development of the solar market in Italy,” commented Marco Di Pietro, Country Manager with Canadian Solar for Italy. “We are proud that our high-quality and high-efficiency modules have been chosen to make SOLARTA a reality.”
