Canadian Solar Inc. has been selected in a bidding process to supply solar panels for 80,000 solar home systems for rural households in Sichuan province, China. The total order size is 1.6MW. This project was initiated and financed by China's Ministry of Agriculture and the Sichuan Provincial Government. The solar home systems are rated for a peak capacity of 20W each. A system of this size can power two lights and a small TV. The delivery of the 80,000 units will be completed by April.

"A solar home system makes a real impact on the lives of these rural households," said Shawn Qu, president and CEO of Canadian Solar. "It will be the first electrical power source these rural families have ever had. We are very proud to be part of this project."
