Canadian Solar, ET Energy To Build 132 MW Of Solar In South Africa

Construction on the two projects – the 46 MWp Aggeneys system and the 86 MWp Konkoonsies system – is set to begin this September, while operations are scheduled for the end of 2019, and early 2020, respectively.

Chinese module manufacturer and solar energy solutions company, Canadian Solar has partnered with China-based ET Energy to deliver EPC services to the two projects, which will be located in northwest South Africa.

“Over 400,000 Canadian Solar’s 1500V high voltage modules, CS6U-P, will be installed on single-axis solar tracking systems, with a total of 34 central inverters for the two solar projects,” said the companies in a statement released today.

The projects were procured under Round IV of South Africa’s Renewable Energy Independent Power Producer Procurement Programme (REIPPPP).
