[Berlin, Germany, March 26, 2021] Commercial and industrial (C&I) solar installations form one of the three main pillars of the PV industry, alongside residential and utility-scale, and is a sector with near-endless growth potential. In space-constrained, industrialized countries, C&I solar is an increasingly affordable, viable and sensible option for many businesses, particularly as companies are tasked with pursuing both low electricity bills as well as a low carbon footprint.
The latest technological advance in Europe’s C&I solar space comes in the form of Qcells’ new Q.FLAT-G6 flat roof mounting system, which is the latest iteration of the Company’s Q.FLAT mounting system range.
Qcells, a renowned total energy solutions provider in solar, energy storage, downstream project business and energy retail, has this month launched the Q.FLAT-G6 in all of the major solar markets across the continent.
Aerodynamic, sturdy, flexible
The Q.FLAT-G6 mounting system boasts an optimized ballast that makes it Qcells’ most aerodynamic flat roof mounting system to date. The Q.FLAT-G6 was developed having been subjected to stringent WTG wind channel testing, and is manufactured using materials that are durable, environmentally friendly and lightning protected.
The ballast fixing is also compatible with most rooftop properties, including gravel and green roofs. Another key feature of the Q.FLAT-G6 is its short installation time. Connection to the rooftop is achieved in four simple steps thanks to the non-interchangeable click technology; which means that installers do not have to undertake unnecessary measurements while up on the roof. They also only need one tool to complete the mounting process in record-quick time. Cabling of the solar panels is also simplified thanks to the Q.FLAT-G6’s unique design, which ensures a smooth, tangle-free and, ultimately, safe cable-laying process. Customers can also opt for a range of extensive accessories, including an inverter bank and the connection of irradiation sensors to ensure that their installation is operating at maximum efficiency.
The Q.FLAT-G6 is compatible with all Qcells solar module types designed for C&I arrays – above all the Q.PEAK DUO-G9 and the Q.PEAK DUO ML-G9 modules, which comprise the company’s self-developed Q.ANTUM cell technology as well as a zero gap layout for maximum power output per area. The brand-new Q.FLAT-G6 system is now available to companies that wish to consume affordable and sustainable solar electricity from their own rooftop.
Goo Min, Head of Sales EU for Qcells, said: “We are excited to introduce the new Q.FLAT-G6 system to our European markets, which is yet another technologically advanced product to add to our growing portfolio of services and energy solutions in Europe. Qcells strongly sees vast untapped potential in the C&I solar sector, and not only provides sector-specific technology but also solar leasing and power contracting services designed to broadly support businesses that wish to embrace a solar future without the burden of high upfront costs.”
