Last week, Canadian Solar Inc (CSIQ) announced that five of its solar module series, CS6P- 220P, 225P,
230P, CS5P-240M and CS5A- 180M, rank amongst the highest performing in last month’s PV USA (PTC) ratings. PTC ratings are quickly becoming universally accepted standards for measuring real-world module power and performance.
The PTC measurement, a mandatory test in the State of California, measures a PV system’s power output at atmospheric conditions that closely resemble true solar and climatic variable conditions. A higher PV rating indicates higher actual production on-site per-watt installed, which translates directly into higher rebates for system owners.
“With this industry recognition, it is again confirmed that Canadian Solar brings high quality products to market,” said Scott Gordon, Vice President Sales, Residential for HelioPower. “We are very pleased to offer Canadian Solar modules to our customers because of their compelling value proposition.”
