Hanwha Q CELLS Co. Ltd. recently announced it will increase its 2016 solar module supply agreement with Sunrun, the largest dedicated residential solar company in the United States. Through the partnership, Hanwha Q CELLS will become one of Sunrun’s main suppliers next year providing up to 135 MW of modules, nearly three times their previously signed module supply agreement in 2015.
“We are pleased to have access to a steady supply of high quality modules from an industry leader like Hanwha Q CELLS,” said Paul Winnowski, chief operating officer of Sunrun. “Sunrun is committed to providing simple, affordable solar to homeowners and creating a great customer experience. This agreement will enable us to continue doing so in the coming year.”
The cells and modules will be manufactured from Hanwha Q CELLS’ fully automated facilities in Malaysia and South Korea. The agreement will feature the Q.PRO BFR-G4 and Q.PLUS BFR-G4 product lines. The Q.PLUS BFR-G4 uses Hanwha Q CELLS’ proprietary, high-efficiency Q.ANTUM cell architecture to achieve more power than the industry’s standard solutions. Hanwha Q CELLS is the first company that successfully commercialized multi c-Si PERC cell in mass production.
Mr. Justin Lee, President of Hanwha Q CELLS America said, “This agreement further solidifies and strengthens the relationship that Hanwha Q CELLS has with Sunrun. With Hanwha Q CELLS’ demonstrated module quality and Sunrun’s reach in the U.S. residential market, we are confident that this will further strengthen our position as one of the leading providers of solar modules.”
