Improvements to both product and performance warranties have been made to Canadian Solar’s PV module series. Effective August 1, 2011, Canadian Solar's warranty now provides a linear performance guarantee for power output over a 25-year period as well as having a product warranty covering workmanship and material defects to 10 years.

Canadian Solar expects that the actual power output of its modules would be no less than 97% of the labelled power output during the first year of operation, but declining by no more than 0.7% annually. Over a 25-year period, actual power output is expected to be no less than 80% of the labelled power output.

The company also noted that the enhanced warranties were to remain backed by a 25-year, non-cancellable insurance policy issued by A.M. Best rated, investment grade insurance underwriters.

    Signs earlier in the year of the global industry entering a growth phase have now been confirmed beyond any doubt. Almost all the big-name suppliers have now announced some form of manufacturing capacity expansion, a trend that analysts agree will only gather pace as long as the levels of demand predicted over the next few years turn out to be correct.

    Although the past few years have proved extremely testing for PV equipment manufacturers, falling module prices have driven solar end-market demand to previously unseen levels. That demand is now starting to be felt by manufacturers, to the extent that leading companies are starting to talk about serious capacity expansions later this year and into 2015. This means that the next 12 months will be a critical period if companies throughout the supply chain are to take full advantage of the PV industry’s next growth phase.
