In September 2013, the company initiated the construction on the project and the grid connection for the project was completed in December 2013.

The company has used around 40,788 CS6P-245P modules with power output of 245Wp for this project.

CSI Solar Power China, a subsidiary of Canadian Solar, has developed this project and Gaochuangte New Energy acted as the EPC contractor.

An average electricity generation of 11 million KWh per annum is expected from this solar power plant. It can displace 8,657 tons of carbon dioxide, 67 tons of sulfur dioxide and 60 tons of nitrogen oxide each year.

Canadian Solar chairman and chief executive officer Shawn Qu said: "This project is another good demonstration of Canadian Solar’s success in the development and construction of utility-scale solar power plants on a global basis as well our growing momentum in China, a rapid growing emerging market that is poised to become the world’s largest solar market in the years ahead."
