WHY GO SOLAR WITH Q CELLSSecure return on investment and higher electricity output
WORK HARD. WORK SMART. OR IDEALLY, DO BOTH.
If you want a system that will offset your household's electricity bills for the next 25 years – without the need or expense of a system upgrade – consider the advantages of installing a brand that's guaranteed to withstand the test of time.
Q CELLS has consistently ‘raised the bar’ in terms of solar energy research and cell performance, and is still unbeaten in terms of quality control.
We sweat the small details because, over time, they become the big issues.
We know people choose solar power because they care about the environment. A system that needs to be scrapped before the end of its useful life would compromise everything we stand for.
Size gives you peace of mind.
Q CELLS is a global brand, with an Australian base in Sydney and a nationwide network of trusted industry partners to offer service and support.
‘Global’ here is a positive on many levels, but chiefly, it means Q CELLS panels have been engineered to work in every climate on Earth. This makes them efficient, smart and tough. In other words, our panels can cope with a Canadian winter, an Australian summer or anything in-between.
With Q CELLS, you’re choosing a brand with the technology to provide highly stable power production for decades.
They’re tested, proven and guaranteed to perform so you can get on with life, and completely forget our panels are up on your roof… with only the pleasant surprise every time you open a power bill to remind you.
WARRANTIES THAT GIVE YOU PEACE OF MIND TOO.
Q CELLS is completely devoted to the advancement of solar power technology. We’re so confident in the power and performance of our product that we'll not only give you a 12-year panel warranty (20% longer than most), but one of the best 25-year linear (or long-term) performance guarantees on the market.
As warranties will only be honoured for as long as the company operates, it's important to choose a financially stable manufacturer with a solid reputation and proven track record – this can be tough in the often volatile photovoltaic industry.
Q CELLS is a flagship brand owned and backed by the Hanwha Group, a highly diversified Fortune® Global 500 company, that's been operating for over 60 years. Solar power is a key pillar of Hanwha's investment strategy.
We believe that clean, reliable solar power is absolutely key to a sustainable future… what we make and what we believe are completely aligned.
WE THROW EVERYTHING AT R&D. BECAUSE THE WEATHER THROWS EVERYTHING AT US.
At Q CELLS, we don't just claim our panels are built to survive and thrive, we prove it. Together with Germany's VDE Institute (among the world's most prominent independent testing organisations) we implemented the most comprehensive quality testing program in the solar industry sector.
This rigorous testing goes above and beyond the minimum standards that solar panels are required to meet for sale. The program tests samples from production continuously and independently, so there’s no place to hide. Some manufacturers’ prototype panels barely pass basic testing, which only ensures a product survives the first few years of operation.
We constantly subject our panels to the most punishing conditions within our own laboratory climate chambers and at our arduous outdoor testing facilities worldwide. In addition to our internal testing, the industry-leading VDE Quality Tested Program is designed to ensure panels last beyond 25 years.
WE DO OUR TESTING WHERE THE PANELS WILL BE TESTED.
Not all companies can take their panels to task in Saudi Arabia's desert sand storms, India's humid sub-tropics and in multiple testing sites around Australia, including at Alice Springs' Desert Knowledge Centre and in James Cook University's renowned Cyclone Testing Station in Queensland. Here, our panels survived the phenomenal pressures of a 1 in 500-year cyclone.
All this means that when you choose Q CELLS, you'll have complete peace of mind knowing that your solar system is fully tested to withstand the world’s harshest conditions.
You can also install with confidence, knowing Q CELLS are backed by a 12-year product warranty and are guaranteed to continue to produce at least 83% of nominal power after 25 long years.
Furthermore, this 12-year warranty specifically covers Potential Induced Degradation (PID) and hot spots, which can cause significant power reduction or, even worse, serious safety issues like fires. Q CELLS specifically test for these issues to ensure none of our modules are affected - something no other manufacturer writes into their warranty.
WITH Q CELLS ON YOUR ROOF, YOUR POWER BILLS WON’T GO THROUGH IT.
To minimise energy loss, wider spacing between the support frame and solar cells reduces the impact of collected dirt and dust, while Q CELLS’ anti-reflection layer seals the one-piece corrosion resistant panel to minimise reflection by 50%.
Even in light levels equivalent to a dull and cloudy day, and when the sun is low in the sky, our solar panels will still achieve 98% of their rated nominal efficiency. Q CELLS are designed to capture light coming from low angles, to maximise power production throughout the day, or even in the middle of winter.
This means they're still working for you earlier in the morning, later in the afternoon and when the weather or other conditions aren't.
LIKE ALL INVESTMENTS, YOU NEED TO LOOK AT THE RATE OF RETURN.
The solar installation on your roof will represent a significant investment.
How it performs, how well it has been installed, its ability to capture sun throughout the entire day (and year) and the amortised cost of the system over the course of its projected life, will all have a bearing on your rate of return.
Do the job properly, pay for the right equipment – and the right advice – and you’ll reap the rewards over time.
Every time you look at your power bills, you’ll be glad you dug a little deeper.
