Canadian Solar launches bigger modules that can reach 590 W

Canadian Solar today launches the super-high power Series 5 and Series 6 PV modules to celebrate Canada Day. These new modules will join the HiKu, BiHiKu and HiDM portfolios, expanding the range of high-power, high-efficiency monofacial and bifacial solar modules.


Series 5 portfolio – HiKu5, BiHiKu5: HiKu5 and BiHiKu5 use LeTID (light- and elevated temperature-induced degradation) mitigation technology and have power classes of up to 500 W. Available in both monocrystalline and polycrystalline cells, the LeTID of the HiKu5 is 50% lower than the industry standard, according to Canadian Solar.

Series 6 portfolio – HiKu6, BiHiKu6: HiKu6 and BiHiKu6 (bifacial) offer power classes of up to 590 W and module efficiency of up to 21.3%.

Series 5 portfolio – HiDM5: HiDM5 expands upon the HiDM product line, manufactured in Canadian Solar’s Guelph factory in Ontario. Using shingled cells, the HiDM5 will be available in power classes of up to 405 W.

“Since I founded the Company in Canada 19 years ago, I am proud that Canadian Solar has become a leader in the development and deployment of the latest solar technologies. As reflected in today’s announcement, our commitment is to develop leading technology that will deliver more solar energy more cost-effectively,” said Dr. Shawn Qu, Founder, Chairman and CEO of Canadian Solar. “Our HiKu, BiHiKu and HiDM product ranges have always been at the forefront of PV module technology, and the launch of the new Series 5 and Series 6 modules is another important achievement as we continue to provide powerful, efficient and high-quality solar solutions.”

The new products will be backed by competitive warranties and Canadian Solar’s commitment to high quality customer service.
