Canadian Solar Inc. has invested in and partnered with Strata Solar on a suite of utility-scale solar power projects located in North Carolina. The projects, developed jointly, will total approximately 85 MW divided among 15 solar installations.

The first project to be commissioned is Fuquay Farm, a 6.4 MW project located in Willow Springs, N.C. The project broke ground in November 2012 and will be commissioned by the end of this month.

The portfolio of 15 solar power projects mainly consists of 6 MW utility-scale solar energy farms, but it will also include a 1 MW rooftop solar system and a 3 MW farm. The construction will be staggered throughout the year, with the entire portfolio set for completion by the end of the year.
