Canadian Solar Starts Mass Production of New Rooftop Module with Power Output Reaching 420 W
CS6R-MS, the new module type under HiKu6 series, has the power output of up to 420 W and module efficiency of up to 21.5%. The CS6R-MS module is especially suitable for rooftop solar applications given its small module size (1.95 m² ˣ 30 mm), light weight (21.3 kg), and outstanding aesthetic design for homogenous appearance.
- 5~10 W higher power and around 0.5% higher module efficiency than the similar format PERC modules in market. The CS6R-MS module has the power up to 420 W and its module efficiency is up to 21.5%.
- Small module size, light weight, and outstanding aesthetic design, especially suitable for rooftop solar systems. Silver frame, black frame and all black modules are available.
- High reliability and safety. CS6R-MS module has been granted Level 1 certification according to the latest IEC 63126 standard, ensuring the module will generate electricity safely and durably even under the harsher rooftop operating conditions. IEC63126:2020 guidelines are for qualifying PV modules, components, and materials for operation at high temperatures.
- Enhanced product warranty. CS6R-MS comes with an enhanced 25-year product warranty on materials and workmanship for residential rooftop applications.
- The electrical characteristics of CS6R-MS are compatible with most common photovoltaic inverters thanks to current values below 14 A.
- Besides PERC cells,
Canadian Solaris also developing CS6R module with HJT cells and expects to start commercial delivery in this April. CS6R has a module efficiency of up to 22.5% and power output up to 440 W.
Dr. Shawn Qu, Chairman and CEO of Canadian Solar, remarked, "I am excited to announce that we have started mass production and delivered the first batch of the 54-cell modules of up to 420 W based on 182 mm PERC cells. Moreover, the module with N-type HJT cells will be delivered in April. Our new products will further improve the energy yield and reduce the LCOE of residential, commercial, and industrial rooftop solar systems, and meanwhile enable to offset more CO2 emissions.
