Which to avoid?
In most instances, 72-cell (144-half call) solar panel variants for residential installations. 72-Cell QCells solar panels are built by the manufacturer with a primary purpose catered toward larger, more supportive commercial rooftops and infrastructure.
Often perculier cases exist where certain installers or retailers may promote such solar panel variants as ultra-high powered options. However, these are often derived from a lower wholesale price per/watt due to stock oversupply after commercial shipments have been fulfilled.
These higher wattage panels are no more efficient than 60-cell (120 half cells) QCells solar panels and simply occupy a greater surface area per panel. The result is an equal solar array footprint with potentially less desirable side effects in residential circumstances.
Which to consider?
QCells has conveniently categorised their solar panel options for the buyer which is firmly fixated on QCells solar panels. The key difference being the cell structure, efficiency and manufacturing origin. The great news is that all options, irrelevant of manufacturing origin are backed by QCells equally.
Rumour has it though that selected QCells premium range modules are set to become apart of an elite range for purposes mentioned later.
Expansive rooftops can consider:
Limited rooftops should consider:
What is the warranty?
QCells solar panels were some of the first to boast an above average product warranty. However, as selected manufacturers aim to increase credibility, this warranty has become the new base premium.
Product Warranty: All QCells solar panels, irrelevant of manufacturing origin are equipped with a 12-year product integrity warranty. Joining the elite 25-year manufacturers product warranty club may not be too far off with the premium range of QCells solar panels in 2019.
UPDATE: On October 1st, QCells announced a new 25-year product warranty. The warranty will be applied to the upcoming release of Q.Peak Duo-G5+ and Q.Peak Duo-G6+ (available next year). This is the first time a Silicon Module Super League company has released a solar panel with a 25-year product warranty.
Where are QCells solar panels made?
Malaysia: After being acquired by Hanwah in 2012, German solar panel manufacturing relocated in 2015 to Malaysia to better compete on a global scale and ensure long-term financial stability of the well regarded muticrystalline solar panel range.
South Korea: Premium Q.Peak range of QCells solar panels are built in QCells latest production facility within South Korea. A site dedicated to producing modules incorporating high-performance monocrystalline solar cell foundations. An excellent example to such an innovative facility is the QCells QPeak G5 Duo claiming the industries top prize for innovation in 2018 (InterSolar Europe Award).
China: The consolidation of Hanwah’s Chinese manufacturing brand in 2015, SolarOne, ensured all Hanwah assets now operate under the one QCells banner. A formation facilitating 3 key manufacturing locations for customised product lines.
Despite the relocation of production lines, QCells has retained rigorous many German based R&D facilities. A result which has ensured the product across all manufacturing plants remain true to the original design origin.
What do they cost?
Given there are three tiers of QCells solar panels, the price differential is always going to be a little broader than most depending on selection. Not due to product quality, but more so the cell material and incorporated innovative qualities.
No matter the selection though, QCells has an impeccable record across all three tiers and with a responsive Australian support base, all QCells solar panels are well backed should a quality issue occur.
- 3kW: $2990 – $5990 AUD.
- 6kW: $3990 – $7990 AUD.
- 10kW: $8990 – $14990 AUD.
The above price variances consider all QCells solar panels and options with diverse inverter brand and model selections. As every solar installation is a unique as oneself for the ultimate benefits, a custom quote is always recommended. Still unsure and simply seeking a general price with a few alternative inverter options? Then you definately need to see the latest PSW digital catalogue.
