Canadian Solar signs O&M agreements for US battery projects: In a press release, Canada headquartered Chinese solar power company Canadian Solar confirmed that it has signed long-term Operations & Maintenance (O&M) agreements with two solar PV plus battery storage projects in the California, US – the Slate and Mustang projects. In case of Slate, which is a 300 MWac solar plant designed with a 140 MW / 561 MWh battery energy storage system, the agreement is for the whole project. While for Mustang Project, which is a 100 MWac solar plant retrofitted with a 75 MW / 300 MWh battery storage system, the agreement is only for the storage component.

Hailu to sell 156.45 MW PV power plant project for RMB 1.02 bn: Design and manufacturing enterprise Hailu Heavy Industries said that it intends to sell 100% equity of Zhangjiagang Hailu New Energy for no less than RMB 1.02 billion ($0.16 billion). Zhangjiagang has about 156.45 MW PV projects (including centralized PV capacity of about 141.7MW, and rooftop PV capacity of about 14.75 MW).
