The Canadian Solar Difference

Canadian Solar exists to make the difference.

To customers, colleagues, partners, investors and all whose lives we touch. We are also here to make a positive difference to the environment and society as a whole. We do this by providing exceptional products and services that meet the specific needs of customers, employees, partners and investors.

Founded in 2001 in Canada, Canadian Solar (NASDAQ: CSIQ) operates as a global energy provider with successful business subsidiaries in 20 countries on 6 continents.  Besides serving as a leading manufacturer of solar PV modules and provider of solar energy solutions, Canadian Solar has a geographically diversified pipeline of utility-scale power projects. With the company’s recent acquisition of Recurrent Energy, Canadian Solar’s total project pipeline is now 9.5 GW, including an increase of the late-stage project pipeline to over 1.4 GW. With two state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities in Ontario, Canadian Solar employs over 9.700 workers worldwide. This translates into more than 22 GW of panel shipments, or over 70 million PV modules, in the past 16 years. Together with Recurrent Energy, Canadian Solar is ushering the way into a new era of clean, competitive, mainstream power.  

With over 1 GW of premium and high efficiency modules spread across the length and width of the country, Canadian Solar is proud to be the market leader in India. Canadian Solar modules have been working efficiently in the desert hot & humid regions of Gujarat and Rajasthan, to the coastal conditions of Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh. This demonstrates our strong position as a global tier 1 solar module supplier with a proven track record of delivering high quality modules to customers. It's no surprise that with premium award-winning products and a dedicated and experienced Indian team, Canadian Solar has become India's number one brand choice in crystalline solar panels.
