Updated: Feb 25, 2023

Discover the benefits of the Hanwha Qcells, including its high power output, sleek design, and reliable warranty. Find out why this module is the best value module and the perfect choice for home and business owners in New England (New Hampshire, Maine, Vermont, Massachussets).

Qcells is a solar panel manufacturer that is well-recognized as a Tier 1 supplier, producing high-performance photovoltaic and energy storage products for residential, commercial, and industrial solar energy markets

The company is renowned for its solar panels' efficiency, performance, and warranty structure, which are widely used by solar installers worldwide. Moreover, Qcells is a popular solar brand in the U.S., and if you're exploring solar options and evaluating quotes from installers, you might have encountered Qcells panels. We've collected all the vital information you need to know to determine their quality.


Company History

Qcells is a long-standing solar panel manufacturer with roots in Thalheim, Germany dating back to 1999. Despite facing insolvency in 2011 due to worldwide economic downturn and competition from Chinese companies, the Hanwha Group, a South Korean company with its own solar business, purchased its assets and has since reinvigorated the brand to become one of the top 10 solar module manufacturers in the world.

In 2018, the Hanwha Group decided to remove its name from the brand, resulting in a simplified "Qcells" brand name. The company now has manufacturing facilities worldwide, including a large plant in Dalton, Georgia, which is currently the largest solar manufacturing plant in the western hemisphere and produces more solar panels in North America than any other company.

Qcells is known for its innovative solar cell technology and has been manufacturing high-quality solar modules since 1999. In addition to its core solar module business, the company now offers Q.HOME solar batteries and hybrid solar inverters. Qcells has experimented with various types of solar cells, but since 2012, it has focused on PERC (passivated emitter and rear contact) technology.


Qcells: PERC and Q.ANTUM DUO Technology

Qcells' PERC solar cells are designed to capture as much energy from the sun as possible. Traditional PERC cells can degrade quickly when exposed to light and electricity, but Qcells' proprietary process reduces these problems so that they're almost non-existent. This means that you'll be able to generate more electricity over a longer period of time, making Qcells panels a smart investment for your home or business.

The latest advancement in Qcells modules is Q.ANTUM DUO, which uses half-cut solar cells wired in two halves to maximize efficiency. With this design, there is less resistive energy loss, more area for the PERC layer to grab photons, and better durability. The split-panel design also means lower losses from shading, so even if only one section of the panel is shaded, the other half will still output its full potential.


At Harvey Woods, we only offer the Q.Peak Q.ANTUM Duo BLK ML-G10+, which is a highest performance solar module from Qcells.

This advanced solar panel delivers maximum power output per square ft. in any weather condition, making it an ideal choice for homeowners and businesses in New England.

Made in the USA.



Qcells are a extremely reputable company in the global solar industry and produce durable, high powered equipment that can operate for over 20 years. Featuring Q.ANTUM and PERC technology, Qcells offer customers in New England maximum power production across a large variety of weather conditions. This translate to highly-desirable ROI's and reliable power over the long-term, which is what customers in New England are looking for.
