Canadian Solar just announced that they have released their NewEdge solar panels in the US market. The panels are compatible with the new Zep roof-mounting System, and used together the products have the potential to reduce installation costs by half and reduce the amount of time spent to install the panels on a roof by 75%.
The NewEdge solar panels are available in two different varieties, one using 5″ monocrystalline silicon, and one using 6″ polycrystalline silicon.
In a press release, Mike Miskovsky, general manager of U.S. operations for Canadian Solar, commented on the news:
“Canadian Solar is the first solar panel manufacturer to provide the Zep Compatible NewEdge panels, and we’re looking forward to offering installers this high quality and forward-thinking solar technology. The Zep System represents a turnaround in standard installation practices and hardware. Canadian Solar is building on our market leadership and reputation for high quality products by coupling our high performance modules with this leading next-generation installation technology.”
