It is a leading manufacturer of solar photovoltaic modules, provider of solar energy and battery storage solutions, and developer of utility scale solar energy and battery storage projects with a geographically diversified portfolio at various stages of development. The company was founded in 2001 and manufactures its solar panels in Canada, China, Indonesia, Vietnam and Brazil. Under the same conditions, a high-efficiency solar panel will produce more electricity than a lower-efficiency panel of the same size. For every degree higher than 25°C (77°F), your solar panel's electricity output will decrease according to its temperature coefficient.
In addition to facilities in China and Canada, Canadian Solar also manufactures various solar materials in Indonesia, Vietnam and Brazil. The temperature coefficient is an indicator of how well your solar panel can withstand less than ideal conditions. Next, we'll look at how your solar panels compare to other major brands and whether you can trust them to last several decades on your roof. Your solar panels are likely to see more than a few hot, sunny days throughout each year, so ideally they should have the lowest possible temperature coefficient.
We have also created a comparison of Canadian solar panels with other leading panel manufacturers that frequently appear in offers for homeowners and businesses purchasing solar energy on the EnergySage Solar Marketplace. In total, we have delivered more than 75 GW of solar modules to thousands of customers in more than 160 countries, enough to meet the clean and green energy needs of approximately 17.7 million homes. Whether you're buying a TV, a car, or solar panels, the manufacturer must back up your product with a solid warranty. As one of the top 5 solar panel manufacturers in the world, Canadian Solar has a long history of success and big plans for the future.
EnergySage has revised the product specifications of each series of Canadian solar panels to facilitate your solar research process. The term “solar panel efficiency” refers to how well a solar panel captures sunlight and converts it into useful electricity.
