Solar Module Melds Three PV Technologies

(Canadian Solar)

Canadian Solar introduces its proprietary P4-based BiHiKu module that integrates three solar PV technologies in one 400W+ module. These technologies include the latest black silicon, poly PERC, and bifacial cell technologies. The result is the BiHiKu module, a HiKu module with bifaciality up to 75%.


This poly solar module generates 400W or more on the front, plus up to 30% additional power generation from the back side, increasing system yield and reducing the Levelized Cost of Electricity (LCOE). The Company believes that BiHiKu is the first poly bifacial module exceeding 400W nominal front side power. The product will be available in 2019 and pre-production orders are being accepted now.
