Canadian Solar has supplied modules for a solar power plant constructed by EOSOL Energies and Caisse des depots et consignations in Villeneuve de Marsan, France.

The ground-mounted power project, which has an installed capacity of more than 8MW, will include 35,000 units of Canadian Solar CS6P 230W module.

The facility is expected to generate enough electricity to power approximately 2,500 households annually, preventing about 9,180 tons of carbon dioxide emission.

EOSOL Group president Bruno Bernal said that this new plant on 17 acres in Villeneuve de Marsan corresponds to the company’s common desire to continue its commitment and investment in green projects.

Canadian Solar designs, manufactures and delivers solar products and solar system solutions for on-grid and off-grid use.
