Solar Module Melds Three PV Technologies

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.

Fierce AI Week

Register today for Fierce AI Week - a free virtual event | August 10-12

Advances in AI and Machine Learning are adding an unprecedented level of intelligence to everything through capabilities such as speech processing and image & facial recognition. An essential event for design engineers and AI professionals, Engineering AI sessions during Fierce AI Week explore some of the most innovative real-world applications today, the technological advances that are accelerating adoption of AI and Machine Learning, and what the future holds for this game-changing technology.


In addition, Canadian Solar is introducing to the North America market the HiDM high density module, a shingled solar module with IP-granted design features and up to 19.9% module efficiency. The 60-cell sized mono PERC HiDM delivers up to 330W and appears as an aesthetically-pleasing, all-black module for residential rooftops. The 72-cell sized mono PERC HiDM outputs up to 410W in a black module groomed for commercial applications. For more details, visit Canadian Solar and/or or email [email protected].
