26 Mar News for installers: product change, copper price and more
Some news for our customers on the current PV market situation and upcoming changes in Solarity portfolio.
From Canadian Solar 370W to 375W
At Solarity, we are following the trends in the PV industry in order to provide you the best service and product availability. We are constantly improving our portfolio to fulfil the specific needs of every project. Hence, from July 2021, we will replace Canadian Solar 370W with 375W mono in our portfolio.
Switching to Canadian Solar 375W will allow you to obtain higher wattage and better efficiency. You can check the differences between modules in the datasheet or in the table below.
Please consider this new information while planning your future projects.
Copper prices are rising
In January 2021, the London Metal Exchange recorded its highest copper prices since 2011.
One of the reasons why copper prices have risen is the expansion of renewable energy and electric vehicles markets. Another reason is the supply crunch of copper concentrates – the result of mine shutdowns caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
According to forecasts, the supply shortage combined with the rising demand will keep copper prices high in the next quarter. Therefore we can expect an increase, especially in PV cables’ price as their main component is copper. The price increase will affect everyone in the PV market: from manufacturers and distributors to installers and end customers.
