David Steel, the CEO of the U.S. Green Chamber of Commerce will oversee Canadian Solar and Fire Energy USA formalize an agreement to enter into a 20 MW solar panel supply for the North American Market in 2013. This agreement will enable Fire Energy USA to have a stable supply of panels at competitive prices. Agreements such as this one will be instrumental in achieving the projection of 3,900 permanent jobs that are to be created as a result of streamlined permitting and the demand for Solar in the Golden State according to a recent AECOM study.
