Solar panels are used to harvest the energy from the sun and stored in the batteries for later use or to directly power direct current (DC) appliances. The ability to generate electricity from sunlight is called SOLAR PHOTOVOTAIC SYSTEM (PV). It traps and converts the sun rays to DC electricity. Across the world there are different companies know for the manufacturing solar panel around the world.

 CANADIAN SOLAR

Canadian Solar is one of the leading solar panel manufacturers in the world. it was founded in 2001 by Dr Shawn Qu and has grown to become one of the leading solar panel manufactures with roughly 14,000 employees and over 500 researchers and engineers. The company based in Guelph, Canada. What help them maintain this position in the global solar panels market are the innovations that they incorporate in their products. For instance, one of their latest products, the Dymond CS6X- P-FG module replaces traditional polymer back sheet with heat-strengthened glass. It also has a lower annual power degradation and better protection against the elements when compared to the traditional module.

TRINA SOLAR

Trina Solar is a popular company that has been in the business for the past two decades. They are known to be one of the best solar panel manufacturers, offering products that are designed and manufactured to the highest quality standards.
