Current Output

Polycrystalline silicon array, fixed ground-mount.

Canadian Solar’s polycrystalline modules have better temperature behaviour than monocrystalline PV modules, and are best suited for applications in high ambient temperature environment. Our innovative five busbar cell technology poly modules increase module power output and system reliability.

All our PV modules are manufactured based on a meticulous design and rigorous quality control ensuring a high-yield, long-term performance for every module produced.

Our Modules Key features:

 : Cell efficiency of up to 19.2 %

 : High PTC rating of up to 91.89 %

 : Outstanding low irradiance performance: 96.5 %

 : IP67 junction box for long-term weather endurance

 : Heavy snow load up to 6000 Pa, wind load up to 4000 Pa.

 : 25 years Linear power output warranty

 : 10 years  product warranty on materials and workmanship

Notes on the Data

  1. Monitoring Interruption for UPS Battery Replacement

    The disconnection and re-connection of the solar arrays and weather station equipment while a new site connection was being established prompted the already flattening UPS batteries which power the site’s energy meters to fail and require immediate replacement. Data recording was affected from approximately 2.30pm ACST, Monday 10 July to 4.00pm, Wednesday 12 July.

  2. Partial System Outage

    One of the major switchboards at the DKASC lost power yesterday 01/12/2016 at ~11:00 am. This isolated and shutdown array sites 23 through to 37 inclusive. The switchboard was re-energised at ~16:30 today (02/12/2016) and is again operating normally. Data for this period for these sites is lost.

  3. Site 32: PV Module Changeover

    At the request of Canadian Solar the existing PV modules at site 32 were changed out in full, with existing PV modules being removed and a new and more recent array pf Canadian Solar modules installed. Details on the updated technology is available by linking to the “More Info” tab for Site 32

    Data from the original Canadian Solar array will be archived but remain available from the Historical Data Download page.
