Canadian Solar's BiHiKu solar panels are next-generation bi-facial modules that produce up to 30% more power from PV cells on their back sides. This 395W polycrystalline solar panel excels when ground-mounted above highly reflective surfaces like white gravel, new concrete, and fresh snow. The power gain from the bi-facial configuration ultimately depends on several factors:
BiHiKu solar panels also feature a lower internal current, resulting in a lower hot spot temperature. They also minimize "snail trails" and micro-cracks for increased reliability and carry an industry-leading 30-year power output warranty.
Canadian Solar was founded in 2001 in Canada. They've shipped over 21GW of PV modules, making them one of the top solar panel manufacturers in the world. The company operates three state-of-the-art PV research centers for cells, modules, and systems in Canada and China, and is recognized globally as an innovator in the solar industry.
