Solar Panels Scotland | Canadian Solar
At Solar Panels Scotland we only work with leading manufacturers who supply us with products of the highest quality as this guarantees durable, long lasting solar panels for our customers. Canadian Solar operates on a global scale, providing solar panel materials and technologies across twenty countries and six continents. This renewable energy manufacturer was established in 2001 and first operated in the UK market in 2011. The first UK contract was to supply 15MW of solar modules for 3 UK solar farms, which was done successfully. Since then Canadian Solar have continued to impress by supplying renewable energy solutions for contracts both domestic and commercial.
Canadian Solar Products
There are currently ten Canadian Solar Panel models available in the UK. They are grouped into four series:
The CS5A-M series is the lightest panel produced by Canadian Solar. The cells are comprised of monocrystalline silicon and can deliver efficiency rates of up to 16.05% with the cell size 125x125mm. This panel is comprised of 72 cells which are 6×12 and the front cover is made from 3.2 mm tempered glass with a anodised aluminium alloy frame.
CS6P-P series are made up from polycrystalline silicon and can delivery efficiency rates of up to 16.1%. The cell size is 156x156mm and the solar panel is comprised of 60 cells (6×10). The front cover is constructed in the same way as the CS6P-M series.
The Max Power CS6X-P series is made from polycrystalline cells and can delivery efficiency rates of up to 16.1%. The front cover of this series is made from tempered glass with the frame from anodised aluminium alloy. Each cell is 156x156mm with the solar panel comprised of 72 cells (6×12).
This series differs from the Max Power series as it is made up of monocrystalline silicon cells and can also deliver efficiency rates of up to 16.1%. The cell size of this series is also 156x156mm with the panels made up of 60 solar cells (6×10). The front cover is made from 3.2mm tempered glass with the frame being comprised from anodised aluminium alloy.
Why We Choose Products by Canadian Solar
Panels from Canadian Solar have efficiency rates of up to 16.6%, proving them to be effective energy solutions which are extremely reliable. Canadian Solar apply a special coating to their products to protect them from salt mist, sand and ammonia which has been caught up in the wind and can cause damage to your panels. Therefore, these panels are the best choice for any property owners in coastal or agricultural areas where this type of atmosphere is most likely to occur. However Canadian Solar products are suitable for any location and climate as all the frames are comprised of anodised aluminium alloy making them resilient against even the harshest weather.
A further advantage of Canadian Solar products is that they all come with an anti-glare feature that provides better efficiency. The front cover is constructed of 3.2mm tempered glass, meaning that the panels are highly durable throughout any weather conditions without it compromising their productivity. Testing the elements, these panels can hold up to 5,400pa of heavy snow whereas other solar panels they were tested against can only withstand 2,400pa. These products are highly suitable for homeowners in northern locations where snow is likely during the winter months.

Specialised Features of Canadian Solar Panels
- ELPS (efficient long-term photovoltaic solutions) – The ELPS technology allows the solar cells to collect more light which results in a 21.1% cell efficiency. Featuring a metal wrap through design (MWT) it allows the new cells to move the front busbars to the back of the cells allowing for up to 3% more light absorption per cell. This means that the modules then deliver 7% more electricity than conventional solar modules.
- BIPV (building integrated photovoltaic) – BIPV modules use double low iron tempered glass combined with solar cells laminated in between. By this development it makes this type of product ideal for skylights and roofs. The photovoltaic panel is integrated into the building material with the benefit of producing renewable energy.
Both of these Canadian Solar Panels are suitable for both on-grid and off-grid installation. The modules are usually created from either 60 or 72 cell modules using both monocrystalline and polycrystalline solar cells in the panels production. The manufacturing stages includes texturing, diffusion, plasma enhanced chemical vapour deposition and surface metallization.
