Canadian Solar Inc. announced that the company has acquired a minority equity interest in eNow.
"While we have become one of the world leading solar energy solution providers with close to 20GW module deployment since 2001, I still remember we started very small in 2001 when we provided a 3W solar power battery trickle charging system for cars. eNow's power management for the commercial transportation industry is a big step forward from Canadian Solar's first product. We see a great potential for the transportation industry. It will reduce transportation fuel costs while making a significant impact in cutting vehicle emissions." commented Dr. Shawn Qu, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Canadian Solar.
"We are honored to have received funding from Canadian Solar," said Jeff Flath, Founder & CEO of eNow. "Their tremendous expertise, technology innovation and global credibility in the solar industry could not be matched. We see this investment and partnership as more proof of the viability of Energy-as-a-Service and the increasing demand for sustainable solutions in the commercial transportation industry."
