500MW PV project in Inner Mongolia

Canadian Solar, a vertically integrated photovoltaics manufacturer, will develop a 500 megawatt (MW) solar power plant in the Inner Mongolian city of Baotou. The project will be broken into three chunks, beginning with a 100MW phase to run from September 2009 through December 2011. It will be followed by two 200MW phases. To have a solar project of such magnitude in Baotou demonstrates our determination to develop the PV end-user market in China, as well as our commitment to cleaner and more sustainable economic development in Baotou.

Hi Bill, Great article. I used to work in alternative fuels for Ford Motor Company before retiring. I am a friend of Henry Collinson, who met you at Arts and Crafts many years ago. He would enjoy talking with you. He's in Chicago. I met you years ago when I moved to Grosse Ile, and still live there. Please e-mail if you are interested in contacting Henry, or me.
