April 8, 2009 at 8:03 PM

TORONTO, April 8 (UPI) -- Canadian Solar announced it was recently selected through a competitive bid to supply solar panels in rural China.

The Canadian company will supply panels for 80,000 solar home systems in the Sichuan province of China.

The project was initiated and financed by China's Ministry of Agriculture and the Sichuan provincial government.

The solar home systems will have a capacity of 20 watts each -- enough to power two lights and a small television.

Delivery of the 80,000 units will be completed by the end of the month.
