A total of seven solar facilities will be built by Entropy in North Carolina, in 2014, which will feature high efficient Canadian Solar CS6X-P PV module series.

The projects would jointly generate more than 1.1 million kWh of clean, renewable, solar energy over the next 20 years which is equivalent to taking the CO2 emission of more than 94,000 automobiles off the road or powering more than 130,000 homes.

Entropy Investment Management managing partner Lewis Reynolds said: "Continued commitment to the US market by low cost manufacturers such as Canadian Solar in spite of the challenges is encouraging and ultimately essential for the continued deployment of low cost solar energy in the US."

Covered by a 10-year warranty on materials, the Canadian Solar modules provide a 25-year linear power output performance guarantee supported by third-party insurance policy, which is underwritten by insurance companies.

CSI Americas Operation general manager Thomas Koerner said: "We are privileged to be a part of North Carolina’s solar success story, as North American companies continue to invest in sustainable development.

"Generating local jobs to design, construct and finance these PV projects while increasing the use of clean and renewable energies is part of our dedication to making a solar-powered America a reality."
