Hanwha Q Cells tackles UK rooftop market with half-cell solar modules and energy storage system


Now, Hanwha Q Cells adds the missing piece to this high performance solar module series: The Q.HOME+ ESS-G1 all-in-one storage solution for residential customers. The storage system combines a proven lithium-ion battery holding a storage capacity of 3.6 kWh with an integrated inverter and a battery charger.

The all-in-one storage solution can be operated and monitored via mobile application and comes with a ten year product warranty as well as a performance guarantee of at least 80% after ten years. The certified Q.HOME+ ESS-G1 can be purchased with or without a Q Cells solar system; in the UK via the UK´s largest photovoltaic distributor, Segen Ltd., and via Hanwha Q Cells' Q.PARTNER network in Ireland.

A perfect match: Q.HOME+ ESS-G1 and Q.PEAK DUO-G5 half-cell solar modules

The Q.PEAK DUO-G5 series combines a whole range of technological innovation to reach maximum electricity yields and low LCOE (levelized cost of electricity). Monocrystalline half cells with six bus-bars, the company´s proprietary Q.ANTUM DUO cell technology for higher efficiency and minimized degradation as well as round wires enable the module to reach power classes of up to 330 Wp (Q.PEAK DUO-G5) or 320 Wp (all black Q.PEAK DUO BLK-G5) from 120 half-cells.

Due to its high yields, the module is perfectly suited for residential rooftops in Britain in order to maximize energy yields from the often limited roof space. At the same time, the module series also minimizes LCOE on commercial and industrial company roofs. Customers who chose to combine a Q.PEAK DUO-G5 solar system with the energy storage solution Q.HOME+ ESS-G1 thus have the ideal combination to sustainably reduce their electricity cost.

Maengyoon Kim, EU Sales Head at Hanwha Q CELLS said: “Home owners and companies in Great Britain and Ireland now have the chance to largely disconnect from recent rises in electricity prices.” He added: “Maximizing system yields with a Q.PEAK DUO-G5 based solar system and storing the electricity with a Q.HOME+ ESS-G1 system enables a cheap, clean and flexible electricity consumption.”
