Canadian Solar in the UK

In 2011, Canadian Solar further expanded its activities in the UK solar market. Under the agreement, Canadian Solar would supply 15 MW of solar modules for three UK solar farms, constructed by Spanish renewable energy project company Isolux.

Solar Products Developed by Canadian Solar

Canadian Solar develops specialty solar modules and products, such as:

  • ELPS (efficient long-term photovoltaic solution).

  • BIPV (building integrated photovoltaic) modules, for the solar power market. Canadian Solar's BIPV modules are used in a range of applications including residential and commercial roofing and architectural glazing.

Canadian’s solar panels can be used for both on-grid and off-grid solar applications. The modules are made out of 60 cell modules or 72 cell modules. Canadian Solar produces its solar cells from both monocrystalline and multi-crystalline silicon wafers through several manufacturing steps, including surface texturization, diffusion, plasma-enhanced chemical vapour deposition and surface metallization. These panels are best known for industry leading performance at low irradiation. The company sells 6 models, you can read more about each below.

Features and Efficiency

These panels deliver excellent module efficiency of up to 16.6%. Additionally, solar panels produced by Canadian Solar come with system reliability. The panels are coated to protect against salt, mist, ammonia and blowing sand resistance. These features can bring a lot of value for homeowners living in seaside or farm areas. The frame is also durable, made of anodised aluminium alloy.

Additionally, the panels come with an anti-glare module surface available for better efficiency with the front cover made of a 3.2 mm tempered glass.The test for long-term weather endurance is successfully passed. The panels are able to hold up to 5,400 psf (pound load per square foot) of heavy snow comparing to 2400 psf they are tested against.This feature alone makes the panels a preferred choice by homeowners living in northern areas where snow is a given.
