Claresholm Solar is a joint venture between Capstone Infrastructure, a renewable energy investment company based in Canada, and Obton, a Danish investment company.
CLARESHOLM — The Claresholm Solar farm has been commissioned and started daily operation of electricity power generation.
The Chinese solar PV module brand Astronergy has delivered over 180 MWdc ASTRO series PV panels for this solar farm.
The Claresholm Solar farm is located 13km southeast of Claresholm town in the municipal district of Willow Creek, Alta. With a total investment of $200 million, this farm occupies 1,280 acres of agriculture lands. The parties involved have planned an installation of 132 MWac.
China has shipped 455,758 Astronergy PV panels to Canada since 2020 for installation in a fixed-tilt racking structure.
The company expects the Claresholm Solar farm will help reduce CO2 emissions of around 149,000 metric tons each year when it starts to work. Meanwhile, approximately 33,000 households nearby stand to benefit from the renewable power generation.
Claresholm Solar is a joint venture between Capstone Infrastructure, a renewable energy investment company based in Canada, and Obton, a Danish investment company involved in the development of solar and wind power projects.
“I’d like to highlight Astronergy as the supplier and manufacturer of Claresholm Solar’s bi-facial panels, which are the most advanced technology available in the market. And I’d like to emphasize the significant increase in generation capacity and efficiency of the panels supplied by Astronergy for the project. Our experience working with Astronergy on Claresholm Solar gave us a high level of confidence in terms of quality and ability to deliver, which is why the company has been selected for two more solar projects currently in development,” said David Eva, CEO of Capstone Infrastructure in a statement.
