Canadian Solar has had an incorporated subsidiary in the US since early 2007 and is now increasing its footprint in anticipation of the US becoming a significant market for solar products. Going forward, regional sales offices will be added. CSI’s complete line of products will be offered in the US including both of its regular and e-Module products, as well as custom and off-grid products.
Robert Patterson, President of CSI Americas remarked: “In 2009 and 2010 we see the US developing into a major market for both of our regular and e-Module solar products. In discussions with our downstream partners we expect to see substantial growth in the US in 2009. This office in the Bay Area will help us better serve our US customers and will allow us to take advantage of R&D and supply chain resources in the US as well.”
