The 205W module which uses 48 pieces of 156mm x 156mm poly-silicon cells can be used for residential, commercial and industrial rooftops installations.

The company has implemented stringent quality control management system in its module production plants where it has 253 quality control points from incoming material components to manufacturing procedures.

The components are PID free and salt mist/Ammonia resistant.

Canadian Solar has also conducted in-house tests and found that its proprietary mono ELPS solar cell efficiency reached 21.1%.

The ELPS cells feature a metal wrap through design, which moves the front busbars to the back of the cells allowing 3% more light absorption per cell thereby delivering up to 7% more electricity than conventional solar modules.

Canadian Solar ELPS module has been nominated for the Intersolar Award 2012 in photovoltaics category.
