Talking Solar Power International with Canadian Solar

Kathy Heilmann | Canadian Solar

Your company will be exhibiting at SPI 2017, what is it that makes this an important event for your company?

We decided not the exhibit at Intersolar North America this year, so now SPI is the only major trade show we are doing in the USA, so this is our big event.


What can a visitor to your booth expect to see this year?

We will be taking customers on a tour of our Complete System Solutions, and introduce them to our new Ku modules which generate less heat and more power.


Any new products you will be introducing?

Yes, our new line of new dual-cell Ku modules: KuPower, KuMax, KuBlack, and KuDymond.


When you get a chance to walk the exhibit hall floor yourself, what is it you will be most interested to see?

I will look at our competitors (other Tier 1 module manufacturers and companies that offer complete system solutions)


When you book a booth for a tradeshow like this what are your expectations and what does your company hope to accomplish at the event?

We expect to talk business and strengthen relationships with existing customers, and meet new customers and establish business relationships with them.  We also network with potential partners, distributors, suppliers, etc.  We also gather market intelligence and key learnings on the science, technology, customer preferences, best practices, and public policy all regarding the generation of solar power in the USA and around the world.

Easy monitoring with weather sensors from Lufft

Easy monitoring with weather sensors from Lufft

Professional weather sensors form the heart of large solar plants supporting their operation and performance. Lufft was the first manufacturer to combine several sensors in one housing, bringing the largest multiparameter weather sensor family with 19 members into being. Many of them are well-suited for solar site assessment and continuous monitoring. The most commonly used one is the WS600 delivering data on temperature, air pressure, wind, relative humidity and precipitation. Through its open protocol, it can easily be attached to radiation sensors e.g. from Kipp&Zonen. Other models have an integrated Silicon, Second Class or Secondary Standard radiation sensor.
