Solar power in Australia is a fast-growing industry. Solar generation has increased a whopping 42 per cent, with solar PV (especially large scale solar PV) being the fastest growing generation type in both 2019–20 and the 2020 calendar year. It’s no surprise then that the biggest global players in solar are coming to Australia to offer their products to sun-loving Aussies. One of those players is Canadian Solar.

The great white north meets down under.

Canadian Solar has the fifth largest solar panel manufacturing capacity in the world. Since 2001, the company has been committed to achieving a better and sustainable future by producing clean energy. They set up shop in Australia in 2011, and since then, they have provided their expertise and invested heavily in servicing Australia’s solar energy needs.

This global company is certainly not staying distant from their Australian clients. With 60 employees around Australia based in 4 offices and 5 warehouses, Canadian Solar has a strong local presence with local knowledge, dedicated logistics and warranty support covered.

Canadian Solar invests heavily in research and development that helps to provide powerful knowledge, insights and improvements to existing systems. While other manufacturers prioritise distributing channels to its Australian market, Canadian Solar values excellence not only in locally-based customer service but also in the longevity of the system and warranty coverage. The global company has now powered more than 172,000 Australian residential homes. It is also the second-largest supplier of EPC services, inverters and engineering solutions.

Canadian Solar’s social responsibility.

Canadian Solar is committed to giving back to the Australian community through utilising local talents, businesses, and resources around the country. Its dedicated Australian team has experts who are driven to provide a full suite of solar solutions, both as a manufacturer and a service provider.

Not only are Canadian Solar’s Aussie operations firmly planted on Australian soil, but their sense of social and environmental responsibility is here too. Canadian Solar has extended its vision by partnering with the Solar Panel Validation Initiative to protect the small-scale solar industry and empower its customers. The company also has a comprehensive strategy to achieve representation in such a diverse workforce. They are on track to power 100% of their global operations with renewable energy by 2030. In addition, they are also addressing the end of life of solar panels by taking part in the industry-leading solar panel recycling program with Reclaim PV. From a local C-Suite team to using local businesses and creating jobs in regional areas, we are proud to work with a company that is committed to empower locals and make a positive difference.
