As a leading provider of engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) services in the renewable energy and other industrial markets internationally, the Conti Group has installed over 70 MW of solar projects throughout the United States.

GUELPH, Ontario, Oct. 9, 2014 -- Canadian Solar Inc. ("Canadian Solar" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: CSIQ), one of the world's largest solar power companies, today announced that it supplied Conti / SunDurance with 10 MW of solar modules during the third quarter of 2014.


For this 10 MW order, Canadian Solar delivered to the Conti Group in total 33,792 pieces of CS6X solar modules in 6 x 12 cell matrix with UL 1000V certificate. In the life span of 25 years, these modules will turn solar energy into 360,000 MWh of electricity, and displace CO2 emissions by 67,000 tons, the equivalent of taking 11,800 cars off of the roads, or developing a 6,200 hectare forest with 237,000 trees.

As a leading provider of engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) services in the renewable energy and other industrial markets internationally, the Conti Group has installed over 70 MW of solar projects throughout the United States. Matthew Skidmore, Vice President at Conti, commented, "We continue to find success in the industry partnering with sophisticated solar developers, solar asset owners, and electrical utilities to design and build large-scale projects, and are very excited to again work with Canadian Solar on this opportunity."

"We are pleased that Conti, a world leading EPC provider, have once again selected our PV modules. We look forward to continue working with Conti in future projects. I am confident that Canadian Solar's global leadership, proven track record, and strong brand will continue to make us a partner of choice in powering key solar installations worldwide," said Dr. Shawn Qu, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Canadian Solar.
