SAN RAMON, Calif., Sept. 11, 2012 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Canadian Solar Inc. (the "Company", "we" or "Canadian Solar") (NASDAQ: CSIQ), one of the world's largest solar companies, today announced a new program designed to make it even easier for commercial installers and solar developers to bring more solar projects to completion in the U.S. market. The new financial solutions program will include extended terms and a commercial loan offering in partnership with De Lage Landen Financial Services, Inc. (DLL), a global provider of financing solutions, further demonstrating Canadian Solar's commitment to its customers' success.
"The need for clean, alternative energy solutions is greater today than ever. As a global leader, Canadian Solar is always looking for ways to make it easier for our customers to successfully and efficiently move solar energy installations from the bid process to completion. Given the currently challenging environment, we are proud to partner with DLL to help our customers secure the financing they need for their end-user customers -- financing that they would otherwise have difficulty obtaining on their own," said Alan King, general manager of Canadian Solar USA.
