Canadian Solar launches Series 7 modules with power output of 665 W

Canadian Solar at a trade show

Canadian Solar announced the launch of Series 7 modules with power output of up to 665 W. The new generation modules will deliver one of the industry’s most competitive levelized cost of electricity (LCOE) as it further reduces balance of system (BOS) and other costs for solar power plants.

Canadian Solar launched 500 W+ modules four months ago.

Series 7 Product features

# Power classes of up to 665 W and module efficiencies of up to 21.4%

# Commercial deployment of Canadian Solar’s  cell technology and module design, including hetero-type ribbon (HTR) and paving technology (PA)

# Reduction of the light- and elevated temperature-induced degradation (LeTID) using # Canadian Solar Advanced Regeneration (CSAR) technology

# Reducing balance of system costs by up to 5.7% and LCOE by up to 8.9% relative to mainstream 445 W modules

The new monofacial HiKu7 and bifacial BiHiKu7 modules are optimized with leading tracker and inverter designs to support seamless installation of solar plants. This means more modules per string, more watts per tracker and pile, lower equipment and labor costs, and higher project returns.
