Clean energy companies Canadian Solar and Solarcentury have signed a deal for the development of two grid-connected solar systems in Spain.

Canadian Solar will provide Solarcentury with 500MW modules to develop 200MW Cabrera and 300MW Talayuela solar systems.

The 200MW solar plant will begin construction in summer 2019 in Alcalá de Guadaira, Seville. The plant will be connected to the grid in 2020 to power 105,000 households.

The 300MW solar project will be deployed in later in 2019 in the Extremadura region of Talayuela in Spain, for integration with the main grid in 2020 to meet the needs of more than 150,000 homes.

Dr. Shawn Qu, Chairman of Canadian Solar, commented, ‘We are very proud to partner with Solarcentury in one of the largest solar power projects in Europe, which is set to be built without subsidy in the country. This partnership further expands our presence and competitive position in this region.’
