Canadian Solar Panels Ranked #1

Canadian Solar Award


Canadian Solar, one of our most popular panel brands, has been ranked as the world’s number one panel in several criteria by IHS Markit.

A global analyst group, IHS is the foremost source of information on international markets and economic developments. Their Technology Team gives businesses and governments around the world an unparalleled insight into sectors including solar, IT, media, the automotive industry, electronics, and more.

In IHS’s 2016 PV Module Customer Insight Survey, which is conducted annually, Canadian Solar was ranked as the number one supplier in terms of not only quality, but also price/performance ratio.

These two criteria were identified by those surveyed as the two top reasons for recommending a specific solar panel brand to family or friends, making it no surprise that Canadian Solar was also ranked as the number 1 most purchased and recommended brand.

Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Canadian Solar, Dr Shawn Qu, was understandably thrilled with the survey’s results, commenting, “We are honoured to see our dedication to product quality and customer value reflected in PV module buyers. Our quality control starts from where our bill of materials are produced.”

While the ranking is a great selling point for the company, Dr Shawn Qu trusts that Canadian Solar’s commitment to quality is still their best marketing tool, “We believe the best marketing comes from consistently delivering the highest quality product with the best product value to enable customers to achieve their highest investment return.”


About the IHS Markit PV Module Customer Insight Survey

IHS Markit run its solar survey between August and November every year, and survey PV module buyers including installers, integrators, and distributors across the globe.

The PV Module Customer Insight Survey is always independent of all module suppliers, and the number of respondents for each question varies as not all are mandatory.

Results of the survey are used by PV module suppliers to gain an in-depth understanding of their customer’s motivations, opinions, and buying habits.
