A new solar module â€ścustom made for Australiaâ€™s harsh conditionsâ€ť has been unveiled by South Korea-owned PV manufacturer Q Cells, offering a power range between 350-360W, a 15-year product warranty, and a 25 year performance warranty.
Q Cells said on Thursday that the Q.MAXX-G2 was the second generation of the market entry level Q.MAXX range, and the first of the companyâ€™s modules to be exclusively manufactured for the Australian market.
The new product launch marks the Hanwha-owned companyâ€™s latest big push into the Australian solar market, since its October 2019 launch of the Q.Home package, which combines PV, a hybrid inverter, a lithium-ion battery of up to 12kWh and the distributed energy management software of Australian start-up SwitchDin.
â€śQ CELLS is delighted to be launching its first solar module to be manufactured exclusively for Australiaâ€™s harsh climate, reflecting the growing importance of Australia in the global solar market,â€ť said Q Cellsâ€™ head of business Australia, Peter Bae.
â€śFor over 10 years, Q Cells has maintained a full Australian office including engineering and technical staff, so this new Australian-exclusive panel is an exciting next step.
â€śThe Q.MAXX-G2 has been developed using selected materials enabling us to extend the warranty to 15 years, tailored for Australian conditions.
â€śThis means that are consumers not only getting access to Q Cellsâ€™ globally recognised manufacturing and engineering quality but additional piece of mind from an extended product warranty, created specifically for Australia.â€ť
