Hanwha Q CELLS receives Carbon Footprint certificate for the French market

Hanwha Q CELLS received the Carbon Footprint certificate by the French photovoltaic engineering company Solstyce. This certificate is one of the requirements solar companies have to fulfil in order to be eligible for participating in French tenders. The Q CELLS Q.PRO and Q.PEAK modules have received the certificate and are therefore proving again the modules’ superior quality. The modules were calculated at 594.8 kgCO2 / kWc for the Q.PEAK mono crystalline modules and at 638.5 kgCO2 / kWc with regard to the Q.PRO poly crystalline modules – values emphasizing Hanwha Q CELLS’ efforts to develop and manufacture top-quality products in an environmentally-friendly way.
The French government has opened participation in tenders for solar plants of more than 250 kW for a total volume of 400MW. Submissions can be handed in until September 16, 2013. The Q CELLS modules are well positioned for securing high (Q.PRO modules) and maximum (Q.PEAK modules) gradings for the tender process.
Hanwha Q CELLS also received the Certisolis “Made in EU” certificate in March 2013 for manufacturing solar cells and solar modules comprised entirely of European components. This enables French customers to receive a bonus of up to ten percent on the French feed-in tariff. The certificate also demonstrates that European customers can rely on Hanwha Q CELLS to engineer and manufacture high quality products in Germany and within the European Union.
Q CELLS is distributed from VP Solar, historical Italian PV distributor of the highest quality products (modules, inverter, batteries, cables, connectors, etc.). For information: sales@vpsolar.com
