Recurrent Energy, part of Canadian Solar Inc., completed the sale of the »Slate« project to Goldman Sachs Renewable Power. The 300 MW solar plus 140.25 MW / 561 MWh storage project is located in Kings County, California, and has commenced construction. Commercial operation is anticipated in late 2021. It will utilize approximately 962,000 of Canadian Solar's high efficiency bifacial BiKu modules across approximately 2,400 acres.
The project has signed PPAs with five different off-takers. According to Shawn Qu, chairman and CEO of Canadian Solar, »Slate« is Recurrent Energy's largest solar-plus-storage project and is expected to be one of the largest integrated solar-plus-storage projects in the US.
Over the past 19 years, Canadian Solar has delivered over 49 GW of solar photovoltaic modules to customers in over 150 countries. The company has developed, built and connected PV plants with over 5.6 GW in over 20 countries. Currently, Canadian Solar has over 500 MW of projects in operation, over 5 GW under construction or in backlog (late-stage), and an additional 11 GW in pipeline (mid- to early- stage).
