First Power Purchase Agreement
On March 12, 2020 Canadian Solar Panels announced its intention to break into the
Australian wholesale power business. The NSW authorities gave construction the
go-ahead two days later.
The project will generate an estimated 293,000 GWh of electricity annually when
completed in 2022. It will support Amazon’s Australian operations in terms of a
power supply agreement already in place.

Canadian Solar Panels has more exciting plans in the pipeline for Australia. We
anticipate Australian businesses and homeowners should have a part in these. This
company is fast moving and arguably ahead of the wave.
