Canadian Solar Solutions, a wholly owned subsidiary of Canadian Solar, has sold the 10MW AC SparkleLight solar power plant to a subsidiary of BluEarth Renewables.

Located in Beavertown, Ontario, Canada, the SparkleLight is the third of four solar power plants being acquired by BluEarth from Canadian Solar.

BluEarth president and chief executive officer Kent Brown said: "BluEarth is pleased to be expanding our renewable energy portfolio with the addition of the SparkleLight facility. This acquisition brings us one step closer to our goal of $1 billion of high-quality operating assets by 2017.

"We value our relationship with Canadian Solar and look forward to continuing that relationship with the delivery of the LunarLight facility next year."

The C$66m ($57m) facility features Canadian Solar’s CS6X-300/305P modules, which are manufactured in Canada.

Canadian Solar chairman and chief executive officer Dr Shawn Qu said: "We are pleased to announce the closing of the third utility-scale solar power plant to BluEarth Renewables, a private independent renewable power producer."
