Canadian Solar enters the Operations and Maintenance business

Says the company was born out of necessity to operate and maintain

Canadian Solar has launched a new international business unit focused on delivering solar operations and maintenance services for utility-scale power plants.

The announcement was made at the Solar Asset Management and O&M Conference in San Francisco.

“Our O&M business was born out of necessity to operate and maintain our own utility-scale solar power plants in Ontario, Canada,” said Dr. Shawn Qu, chairman and chief executive officer of Canadian Solar.

“Since all the solar plants were our own, we built the O&M team to provide the best quality of service and operations in order to maximize the value of our own solar assets. Now we are making these best practices and processes, fully ingrained in our O&M team’s DNA, available to third-party asset owners,” Dr. Qu added.
