Polycrystalline silicon array, fixed ground-mount
Q-Cells polycrystalline modules have lower temperature coefficients than monocrystalline modules and therefore have the potential to produce more electricity per peak Watt in regions with high irradiation and ambient temperatures.
These polycrystalline modules use high
efficiency cells with a low temperature coefficient and improved low
light behaviour. They have the potential to produce more electrical
energy than monocrystalline PV modules in a comparable area.
Q-Cells is a global business that manufactures photovoltaic cells and modules. Q-Cells also designs, installs and markets large scale photovoltaic systems.
