Satcon has signed a collaborative deal with Canadian Solar that will see the companies market their products to customers as a “best-in-class system solution”. Canadian Solar’s solar PV systems will be marketed with Satcon’s solar inverters, providing a single solution for rooftop solar energy generation. The agreement also complies with the Ontario government’s domestic content requirements in its recently announced feed-in-tariff program.
As both of the companies have manufacturing plants in Canada and China, the collaborative move looks set to provide an opportunity in the emerging solar markets in those countries.
Canadian Solar’s Dr. Shawn Qu, Chairman and CEO, commented, “The Canadian Solar and Satcon turnkey solutions agreement enables customers to maximize rooftop solar energy generation through a combination of Canadian Solar’s distinct PV panels with Satcon’s tested and proven large scale solar inverter solutions. The partnership assures maximum power production in virtually any rooftop environment.”
