California-based global provider of advanced solar energy products Solaria Corporation announced that the company has settled its patent infringement claims against Canadian Solar.

As per the terms of the agreement, Solaria has agreed to terminate its litigation charges against Canadian Solar provided that Canadian Solar ceases its importation of shingled solar modules into the US for the next seven years.

Tony Alvarez, CEO, Solaria, commented, “Solaria initially filed suit against Canadian Solar because they chose to ignore and violate Solaria’s core intellectual property (IP). When rendering his Initial Determination in the ITC investigation, the Chief Administrative Law Judge recognized that Canadian Solar infringed Solaria’s patents. Solaria remains open to cooperating with companies that recognize the value of Solaria’s IP; we’ve licensed Solaria’s technology to other firms in the industry. However, Solaria will actively defend our IP against any infringers, and protect our technology for ourselves and our valued partners.”

The settlement resolves patent infringement disputes that Solaria had brought up against Canadian Solar in Federal District Court for the Northern District of California and in the United States International Trade Commission (ITC) related to Solaria’s proprietary shingled solar module technology.

In the Initial Determination, which was issued in October 2021, Chief Administrative Law Judge Cheney found that Canadian Solar, a Chinese solar panel manufacturer, violated section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, in their importation of shingled solar modules.
