The Q.Home combines solar panels, a hybrid inverter, and lithium-ion battery storage scalable from 4-12kWh up to 12kWh.
On average, the Q.Home system is expected to generate 355kWh more energy than the industry standard -- which equates to a surplus of 35.5kWh per year for 10 years.
The Q.Home's Home Energy Management System (HEMS) allows consumers to monitor and predict household usage patterns and solar energy production. The system
can also be paired with either of Q Cells new launched premium panels with 25-year product warranty, the Q.PEAK DUO-G5+ or Q.PEAK DUO-G6+. (Source: Hanwha, Oct., 2019)Contact: Hanwha Q CELLS Co., Ltd., www.hanwha-qcells.com, www.hanwha.com/en/about_hanwha.html
