Which to consider?

With a majority of Canadian Solar panels comprised of a polycrystalline nature, available roof space will be a major consideration. This isn’t a bad quality, essentially efficiency isn’t often a Canadian Solar panels strongest quality due to an expansive polycrystalline product line.
