In early April, Oakland-based Solaria Corporation filed a complaint against Canadian Solar for patent infringement in the Northern District of California.

The company accused Canadian Solar of using its patented design for a high-density solar module.

Solaria said it shared the technology with Canadian Solar in 2014 under a non-disclosure agreement for a potential licensing deal.

Canadian Solar says the claims are meritless and unfounded, and that it is working closely with its legal counsel and will vigorously defend against the claims made by Solaria.

Canadian Solar added that it respects and takes very seriously intellectual property rights.
