Fortune Energy Adds Q CELLS Award-winning Modules

Top Tier distributor to supply German-engineered solar panels.

Sacramento, CA September 14, 2014

Fortune Energy President Jack Meng announced last week that Fortune Energy will now be carrying Hanwha Q CELLS' solar panels. Hanwha Q CELLS is part of the Top-Ten South-Korean Hanwha Group and the largest European photovoltaics company. Q CELLS solar panels will be the newest brand member of Fortune Energy's Top Tier wholesale solar panel selection. Fortune Energy is a Low Cost SOLAR Distributor and Supplier, bringing high quality wholesale Solar/PV products directly to solar industry professionals.

"We are impressed with Q CELLS solar panels because of the state-of-the-art German engineering. They are simply state-of-the-art in the marketplace at this time," stated Jack Meng, Fortune Energy's President. Q CELLS' proprietary solar cells and modules are developed at its headquarters in Bitterfeld-Wolfen, Germany. Modules are manufactured in different factories in Europe as well as Asia ensuring a flexible production set-up.

Q CELLS modules feature an outstanding performance ratio even under low-light conditions, with only a 2% efficiency loss at 200 W/m2. Additionally, optimized temperature behavior guarantees reliable yields in hot weather or with increased module temperatures.

These favorable parameters result in outstanding real-world performance: Q CELLS polycrystalline panels received Photon Magazine's award for Best Polycrystalline Solar Module 2013 in a ranking of 151 panels from 119 manufacturers around the world. A maximum degradation rate of only 0.6% per year places them in the top tier of long term durability and performance. Standard industry size and electrical specs for a 60 cell module make them highly compatible with similar, existing panels or ideal for a brand new array. Q CELLS panels carry UL and CE certification making them viable for installations just about anywhere.

"We are thrilled to be teaming with such a strong partner as Fortune Energy. Fortune Energy's focus on premium quality at a competitive price fits our brand perfectly. With our production capacity expanding to 1.5 GWp by year end, we are positioned as a strong partner to serve the American market," said Alan King, VP of Module Sales, Hanwha Q CELLS USA.

"We are excited about adding the Q CELLS panels tour portfolio due to the outstanding performance, guaranteed durability, faster installation, more efficient logistics… plus a really competitive price," said Northern California sales manager Karen Hale. Fortune Energy will distribute Q CELLS to its United States customers from one of its three in-state distribution centers in Sacramento, Los Angeles, and Hawaii, effective immediately.

Kipp & Zonen - DustIQ the novel soiling monitoring solution for solar panels

Soiling of the panel glass is one of the major problems in the rapidly expanding solar energy market, with the attendant loss of efficiency and reduction in performance ratios. Now, there's a new, simple and very cost-effective alternative. Based on Kipp & Zonen's unique Optical Soiling Measurement (OSM) technology, DustIQ can be easily added to new or existing solar arrays and integrated into plant management systems. The unit is mounted to the frame of a PV panel and does not need sunlight to operate. It continuously measures the transmission loss through glass caused by soiling, so that the reduction in light reaching the solar cells can be calculated.
