(Bloomberg) — Canadian Solar Inc., the third-largest maker
of photovoltaic panels, arranged loans of as much as C$53.5
million ($44.1 million) for a 10-megawatt solar farm in Ontario.
The non-recourse construction loan for the Illumination
solar farm in Scugog was provided by Natixis SA, Norddeutsche
Landesbank Girozentrale and Cooperative Centrale Raiffeisen-Boerenleenbank BA, the Guelph, Ontario-based solar producer said
in a statement Monday. Terms weren’t disclosed.
The DIF Infrastructure III fund is buying the project,
which will sell power to the Ontario Power Authority under a 20-year contract.
Trina Solar Ltd. and Yingli Green Energy Holding Co. were
the largest solar-panel producers by shipments last year.
