Canadian Solar Supplies Modules to Turkey's Largest PV Plant

The 7.5 MW (AC) ground-mounted PV plant is located in one of Turkey's largest industrial zones, the Kayseri Organized Industrial Zone (KOIZ).

GUELPH, Ontario, May 28, 2015 -- Canadian Solar Inc. (the "Company", or "Canadian Solar") (NASDAQ: CSIQ), one of the world's largest solar power companies, today announced that it has supplied modules to Turkey's largest PV project, the Kayseri Organized Industrial Zone PV Plant.


The 7.5 MW (AC) ground-mounted PV plant is located in one of Turkey's largest industrial zones, the Kayseri Organized Industrial Zone (KOIZ). The plant uses 27,252 pieces of Canadian Solar CS6P-255P modules to reduce the electricity costs for the zone's 86 million kWh/month energy consumption. On April 18th 2015, the official opening ceremony for Turkey's largest PV plant was organized in Kayseri with special attendance of the Turkish Minister of Energy and other top-level government officials. The 950 companies producing in the zone now profit from reduced energy costs as the plant generates 10.95 MWh electricity per year, while offsetting CO2 emissions by 7,728 metric tons.

"We are pleased to have been selected to supply our PV modules to the Kayseri Organized Industrial Zone Project. I am confident that Canadian Solar's global experience, proven track record, and consistent product performance will continue to make us a partner of choice in supplying our modules to key solar installations worldwide," said Dr. Shawn Qu, Chairman and Chief Executive officer of Canadian Solar.
