Qcells panels are installed in more than one third of U.S. solar households, meaning the company has set a new record for the highest market share by an individual residential module supplier over the past ten years.

Qcells' announced plans to invest more than $2.5 billion - the largest investment in the history of American solar - to build a complete solar supply chain in the U.S. With this, Qcells aims to accelerate the U.S.' renewable energy transition and domestic manufacturing expansion amid the country's push for made-in-America clean energy solutions.
Alongside its capacity expansion plans, Qcells' milestones extend to its growing integrated energy solutions for the residential, commercial, and utility sectors.

Qcells will also deliver more than 2.5 gigawatts of solar panels, as well as provide engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) services to selected solar projects contracted by Microsoft through power purchase agreements (PPAs).

Our consistent market leadership serves as proof that our customers value what Qcells as a brand has to offer.
