The Canadian firm will supply Sol Systems with high-efficiency modules manufactured at its newly ramped Texas factory.

GUELPH, Ontario—Canadian Solar Inc. and Sol Systems, a renewable energy company based in Washington, D.C., are partnering to scale new solar module production and procurement in the United States, according to a release from Canadian Solar.

Canadian Solar has secured a framework agreement to provide Sol Systems with a significant supply of modules from its newly ramped Texas module factory. Under the partnership, Canadian Solar will supply its latest high efficiency N-Type TOPCon (Tunnel Oxide Passivated Contact) solar modules to support Sol Systems’ project pipeline in the U.S. between 2024 and 2025, the company said.

Sol Systems is a renewable energy firm that is operating and building more than 2 GW of solar projects valued at more than $2 million. Its customers include Fortune 100 companies, municipalities, counties, utilities, universities, and schools.

Canadian Solar is a manufacturer of solar photovoltaic modules, a provider of solar energy and battery storage products, and a developer of utility-scale solar power and battery storage projects.

“We are thrilled to partner with Canadian Solar to scale the U.S. solar module manufacturing industry and create new American manufacturing jobs,” said Sol Systems Chief Construction Officer Dan Diamond, in the release. “Canadian Solar’s TOPCon modules boost project economics through higher yields, smaller site footprint and lease costs, and lower balance of system costs. We were very impressed with the state-of-the-art facility during our visit to the Texas factory in December.”

Canadian Solar Senior Vice President Thomas Koerner said the company is pleased to the partner of choice for Sol Systems, adding that Canadian Solar’s TOPBiHiKu7 bifacial TOPCon module has received overwhelmingly positive market feedback.

“It gives project developers the secure and long-term module supply they have been looking for,” he said in the release. “We are proud to have ramped up our Texas facility in record time and started module production last December. We are encouraged by the significant interest in and demand for these locally made products.”
