Expert review

QCells is part of the Korean owned Hanwha group, one of the largest industrial conglomerates in the world.

Hanwha initially entered the solar business when it purchased a Chinese solar module manufacturer called SolarFun in 2010. At that time, QCells was a German cell and module manufacturer that was known for high efficiency cells and high quality German manufacturing. In 2012, QCells ran into financial difficulties and was purchased by Hanwha to form Hanwha QCells; this name was more recently shortened into its current form, QCells.

QCells has made a massive commitment to the US market: in 2019, they opened the biggest solar factory in the Western Hemisphere, capable of producing 1,700 MW of solar modules each year. Meanwhile, their solar panels continue to be priced competitively with brands that do most of their manufacturing in Asia.

The combination of reasons we just outlined - ownership by a major conglomerate, U.S. production and competitive pricing, means that QCells deserve to be a top option for homeowners in the market for solar panels.
