Canadian Solar Australia has signed a power purchase agreement (PPA) with retail major Amazon.
The solar power will be supplied from the company’s 146 MWp/110 MWac Gunnedah solar farm, which will reach commercial operation by 2021. The solar farm will utilize Canadian Solar’s BiKu bifacial modules.
The agreement with Amazon is Canadian Solar’s first PPA in New South Wales and marks its strategic entry into the large Australian Consumer and Industrial (C&I) PPA market.
Canadian Solar has a pipeline of nearly 1.2 GWp, including 335 MWp of projects ready to build in the Australian solar market.
