Canadian Solar panels love the Aussie Sun!
More and more Australian households are taking important steps to become more environmentally responsible. From proper waste management to reducing consumption of water and electricity, making these changes at home is a big step towards helping the environment. One way that Aussies are taking big steps to reduce their carbon footprint is by installing solar energy. We do it more than anyone else in the world! A trusted brand for over 20 years has been Canadian Solar.
Installing Canadian Solar solar panels is not only a great way to get cleaner energy and reduce your carbon footprint. It also helps you offset the cost of your energy bills. Canadian Solar solar panels are also guaranteed to give you trouble-free energy for a long time and require very little maintenance.
Additionally, Canadian Solar has been providing products and solutions for approximately 14 million households since 2001. Over the span of these years, they have grown into one of the world’s largest solar photovoltaic products and energy solutions providers, as well as one of the largest solar power plant developers globally.
If you’re considering going solar, you should definitely consider Canadian Solar’s solar panels. Here are 6 of their solar panels for eco-conscious households.
Bifacial High Power Dual Cell PERC Module.
Their line-up of products includes Bifacial High Power Dual Cell PERC Module with a power range that starts at 390 W and can power up to 540 W. This module has PERC technology and enhanced reliability with a lower hotspot performance and better shading tolerance. It yields approximately 29% more energy in its lifespan and is compatible with mainstream trackers. This module’s variations include from BiHiKu, BiHiKu6 and BiHiKu7.
It is not only compatible with mainstream trackers, but it also has a low hot spot temperature and better shading tolerance to enhance reliability. Features up to 50% lower LeTID and lowers BOS & LCOE cost. The HiKu range has variations of HiKu, HiKu5 and HiKu6, each with different wafers and dual cell measurements.
High-Efficiency Heterojunction (HJT) Cell Module.
Canadian Solar also has a High-Efficiency Heterojunction (HJT) Cell Module which has a module efficiency of up to 22% that maximises the use of the rooftop space. This makes it one of the most efficient solar panels on the market. Its energy yield can increase in a warmer climate with low power degradation – great news for Queenslanders. It also has no BO-LID, excellent anti-LeTID & anti-PID performance with a double glass module.
High-Density Shingle Mono-PERC Module.
Their High-Density Shingle Mono-PERC Module can maximise the light absorption area with a LID + LeTID of less than 2%. Its power ranges from 320 to 420 W.

Additional benefits of Canadian Solar.
Canadian Solar solar panels also offer an all-black backsheet and frame for a sleepker, more aesthetic appearance. They also offer KuPower which has various power and sizes for replacement. In addition, KuPower can be used to replace the other brand modules.
Furthermore, a notable benefit of going solar is that that solar systems add value to homes. Moreover, when that system is built with Canadian Solar components, it has a 25 year warranty (wow!), that is not only industry-leading but is backed up with insurance by Canadian Solar. This means you can have absolute confidence that you’ll receive support on your Canadian Solar solar panels for the full 25 years.
