Canadian Solar Inc. (Nasdaq: CSIQ), a manufacturer of solar cell, solar module and custom-designed solar application products, said this morning that it signed an agreement with the government of Suzhou New District to build the "Suzhou Solar Demonstration Park," a project that converts a deserted area into a municipality recreation site featuring a 300KW grid-connected solar power system.

The Chinese company said the park will also serve as a long-term outdoor reliability testing and demonstration ground for CSI modules using various new technologies.

This is one of the first solar power plant projects initiated after China adopted its Renewable Energy Law in January 2006, according to Canadian Solar.
