Canadian Solar’s TOPCon modules have a power output of up to 690 W, and a cell conversion efficiency of around 25.0%.

Canadian Solar said in a statement that its TOPCon modules will increase energy yield of PV systems and deliver one of the most competitive balance of system cost savings and LCOEs for solar power plants, compared to PERC modules.

The company will provide a diversified portfolio of the TOPCon products to meet the needs for utility-scale, commercial and residential markets.

The TOPCon portfolio includes the 182mm cell based bifacial TOPBiHiKu6 (555W-570W) and monofacial TOPHiKu6 (420W-575W) modules, and the 210mm cell based bifacial TOPBiHiKu7 (615W-690W) modules.

Canadian Solar will deliver the 182mm cell based TOPCon modules in the first quarter of 2023 and start mass production of the 210mm cell based TOPCon modules in the second quarter of 2023.

TOPCon module shipments are expected to account for around 30% of the company’s 2023 total module shipments.

Dr. Shawn Qu, Chairman and CEO of Canadian Solar commented, “We are pleased to start delivering our cutting-edge n-type TOPCon modules early next year. The TOPCon modules will become one of our featured products with higher energy yield, lower LCOE and longer performance warranty, compared to the mainstream products in the market.“

“We are committed to delivering more high efficiency and quality products to our customers, while contributing to combating climate change globally,” he added.
