Hanwha Qcells’ long-haul commitment to the U.S. market

Alongside its leading market performance, Hanwha Qcells has achieved milestones solidifying its longstanding commitment to the U.S. market. With the inauguration of its Dalton, Georgia manufacturing facility, the largest module production plant in America, Hanwha Qcells provides up to 1.7 GW of domestically assembled modules annually to the U.S. solar market. Hanwha Qcells’ commitment to the U.S. also extends to its module distribution and fulfillment as well as its growing integrated energy solutions for the residential, commercial and utility solar sectors.

Most recently, Hanwha Qcells’ parent company, Hanwha Solutions, announced plans to launch a multi-billion-dollar expansion to secure capabilities across the full solar value chain including domestically sourced raw materials such as low-carbon polysilicon. This initiative, which would benefit significantly from the passing of the Solar Energy Manufacturing for America Act (SEMA) and smart trade policy, will secure Hanwha Qcells with full control of its solar supply chain while creating thousands of well-paying jobs in the U.S.

Justin Lee, CEO of Hanwha Qcells, said: “Hanwha Qcells is proud to retain the No.1 market share position in the U.S. residential and commercial PV module sectors. Our consistent market leadership in these two segments is made possible by the support and loyalty of our valued customers. Hanwha Qcells will keep reaching to greater heights and strive to continue being the dependable choice for the U.S. market.”
