Canadian Solar announced it was selected by Strata Solar to power five utility scale projects totaling 30 MW. The five North Carolina projects are located in Orange, Lincoln, Union, Rockingham and Caswell counties. The power plants will power approximately 3,750 households, many of which are located in agricultural areas. Strata Solar anticipates that collectively, the systems will eliminate 21,120 metric tons of CO2 emissions, the equivalent of removing 3,900 vehicles from the road. Farming families, in particular, can benefit from adopting solar energy, as it helps offset energy costs, which can impact operational profitability.
