About product

HiKuBlack Mono 400W is a powerful PERC module for all kinds of applications. It features impressive warranties, great design and outstanding durability. You can install these panels on your house roof or use them for building a commercial system of a large scope.

  • 400W power output
  • 132 half-cut cells
  • 19.7% module efficiency
  • T4 or MC4 series connectors
  • F30 Black frame on black backsheet
  • 1000V maximum system voltage

Great power output with PERC and split cell technology

Canadian Solar panels harvest more energy thanks to PERC technology: engineers have perfected the construction of a cell and added reflective coating. As a result HiKuBlack Mono shows a solid 19.7% conversion rate, higher than average numbers on the market. Split cell technology also increases power output by lowering the resistance.

Panels are ready for tornadoes and hurricanes

HiKu Black is designed to be especially durable: it withstands snow load up to 8100 Pa and wind load up to 6000 Pa. Extreme weather conditions aren’t a threat to this module: hail, tornadoes, hurricanes won’t be able to break it.

Half-cut cell design improves shading tolerance

The panel is split in two independent halves that are connected in parallel. Therefore when a cell in one half gets shaded, it doesn’t affect the other half of a panel at all. Half-cut cell design also contributes to making the panel sturdier and increases its lifespan. The panel is less vulnerable to microcracks and hot spots. 

Comes with 25-year warranties for performance, materials and workmanship

Canadian Solar takes a step forward with HiKu Black: the warranties for this model are much better than with other panels from this brand. The panel comes with 25-year product warranty for materials and workmanship, and 25-year performance warranty. 1st year power degradation doesn’t exceed 2% and subsequent annual power degradation is no more than 0.55%.

How much is shipping and how long is delivery?
Our standard shipping charge is $250 for up to 11 panels and it is increased by $25 for every 4 additional panels. In the event, the product is only available on East or West coast custom quote will be sent to you before the order is processed. Normally, we are able to deliver solar panels within 7 business days.
What is the difference between low price panels and top price panels?
With top tier solar panels, you pay for the brand name, proprietary new technology, higher energy output, and better warranty support.
What are the dimensions of the panel?
Please refer to the product datasheet on the product page. We have a datasheet for every product we sell.
How long is the warranty on the panel?
In general, manufacturers provide a 25 year-long performance warranty and a 10 year-long equipment guarantee. Some manufacturers offer 12-15 years of warranty. More information is available in our warranty support section.
Which panels do you recommend for RV, marine?
We recommend Panasonic and Mission Solar panels for smaller systems as their high energy output and excellent craftsmanship guarantee years of service.
Can this panel be used with a 12v system?
Any of our panels can be used for a 12v system with a properly selected inverter and charge controller.
Can I pick up this panel from your fulfillment center to save on shipping?
Yes, we can set up a pick up at a local distributor. Please call to discuss options and stock availability.
How do I connect these panels?
To achieve the best system efficiency, panels should be connected in series to create higher voltage.
How many panels do I need?
This number is determined by your average energy needs. Depending on the type of panels and energy consumption, you might need anywhere from 12 to 45 solar panels. Remember, the more panels you install the more energy you will get.Please use our solar calculator to estimate your energy consumption and plan on building a solar system that will exceed your energy needs by 25%.
Do you offer discounts?
We do offer discounts for orders of over 50 units. Please contact us for details.
How do I build a solar system?
Please use our solar calculator to estimate what equipment you need. Choose your panels, microinverters, inverters, and solar batteries if necessary.Please note that we do not offer solar system design or installation.
How do solar panels compare?
Solar panels differ by power output, voltage, connection type, size, efficiency, and weight. Some solar panels might be sold together with microinverters as a set.
Can I build a solar system by myself as a Do It Yourself project?
Yes, it is possible if you understand what solar equipment you need and how to connect it together. However, please be mindful that handling your own electrical work without having proper experience might cause life-threatening injuries. Please contact a certified electrician if you do not possess appropriate electrical skills.
Can I connect and charge my solar panel battery directly with the solar panel?
We do not recommend using the solar panel without the charge controller. Using solar panels without the charge controller might damage the batteries.
Can I drill holes into the aluminum frame for mounting?
We do not recommend drilling any new holes to the aluminum frame of the panel as it could damage the internal circuit and solar cells. (Also, any modification to the panel will void the warranty). We recommend only using the pre-drilled holes for mounting.
Do solar panels require maintenance? Can I wash my solar panel?
Solar panels generally require very little maintenance. We recommend cleaning the solar panel with water, glass cleaner (Windex) and microfiber cloth.
Will my panel produce power in an overcast condition?
While solar panels require sunlight to generate solar energy, they will still work in cloudy weather. Even on a cloudy day, solar panels will produce energy just not as much.
Will my panels produce power if covered with snow?
Solar panels cannot produce electricity if covered with snow.
What is the best direction for a solar panel to face?
The best direction for a solar panel to face is the South
