Q CELLS has released its Q.PEAK.DUO-G10 European solar module series. The new module is more powerful than the Q.PEAK-DUO-G9 predecessor and features larger M6 wafers. Ground-mounted solutions can be provided by the Q.PEAK.DUOXL-G10 156 half-cell module. It delivers up to 495Wp, which is 20% more than the standard 156 half cell module.
The smaller, 132-cell Q.PEAK DRO ML-G10 version is suitable for residential installations and can produce power outputs up to 415 Wp. This module has also been awarded the TÜV Rheinland Quality Controlled PV certification, which is one of the most thorough testing programs for solar module quality in the industry.
Q.ANTUM DUO Z Technology is responsible for the Q.PEAK DUO -G10’s 132 and 156 half cell versions. These modules have efficiency of 20.9%, 21.6% respectively. Q.PEAK’s DUO-10 series offers a higher yield per square inch, which helps to lower the customer’s overall BOS costs.
“There is a definite trend in the solar industry towards larger cells using M6 – and more recently – M10 wafers, and so Q CELLS has developed the Q.PEAK DUO-G10 series to meet this demand,” says Daniel Jeong, Q CELLS’ CTO. “The larger dimensions mean that each individual module boasts a very high power output, which complements the zero gap cell layout to ensure peak efficiency and performance.”
The black version of the G10 series – the Q.PEAK DUO BLK-G10 – is expected to be available across Europe in the second half of this year.
