Canadian Solar Launches New 1500-Voltage Crystalline Solar Module Portfolio

GUELPH, Ontario -- Canadian Solar Inc. announces that the company will launch the new 1500V System Voltage ("1500V") crystalline solar module portfolio at the 2016 Intersolar North America Exhibition to be held from July 12 to July 14, 2016 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco.

The conventional 1000V system voltage allows PV system designed only up to 1000V. The new Canadian Solar 1500V module portfolio has proven its performance under both IEC/UL standards for 1500V of system voltage and allows a significantly more efficient system design while reducing the overall BOS and cabling costs. The 1500V crystalline module, offered in two product types (60 cell configuration (CS6K - mono and CS6K - poly) and 72 cell configuration (CS6U - mono and CS6U - poly)), provides a robust and cost-efficient system solution by adding more modules in a string, which decreases the number of combiner boxes, direct current (DC) homeruns and trenching. This unique product design lowers wiring losses and reduces the number of equipment, thus improving the overall system performance and efficiency and reducing the labor cost and installation time. Furthermore, the 1500V crystalline module meets both International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) standard and Underwrites Laboratories (UL) standard, making it an industry-leading product that can meet these two top-level international standards at the same time. Consistent with its high product quality, this 1500V crystalline module comes with Canadian Solar's 25-year linear power output warranty and a 10-year product warranty on materials and workmanship.
