Oct. 30 (Bloomberg) -- Canadian Solar Inc., North America’s biggest solar manufacturer, secured a C$104 million ($99 million) loan from Deutsche Bank AG to build three solar farms in Canada.
The non-recourse, construction financing will fund the 30 megawatts of projects that are expected to be built and connected in Ontario through 2014, the Guelph, Ontario-based company said today in a statement.
The projects will sell electricity to the Ontario Power Authority under 20-year contracts, Canadian Solar said. The company got a C$139 million loan from the bank last year.
