“Reliably unreliable,”
the power outage has been inevitable

Electricity, unlike other products, requires that supply and demand balance every second so that frequency and voltage stay within tight tolerances. Absent this balance, generating units will trip off, causing a catastrophic blackout.

Much less efficient, much more carbon intensive

Blackouts have a greater negative impact on the environment as industrial processes, like factories, and power stations are forced to re-start their powers from square one. Moreover, it would not be a quick fix to the lights come back on, which entails a substantial carbon footprint.

Solar will play a critical role in decarbonizing the U.S. electric grid

Solar power could represent 40% of U.S. electrical generation and could sustain as many as 1.5 million jobs by 2035, according to a report on the Biden administration's solar policies released on August.17, 2021 by the White House.

Qcells has long been committed to low-carbon renewable communities

Building on our world-class solar energy business, we set the standards for corporate responsibility and environmental sustainability by bringing more solar energy available to our communities.
Davos Congress Center, Switzerland
Practicing Green
Energy Policy
Contribution to the World Economic Forum via donation of a PV system comprising 640 Qcells Q.PEAK modules. Combined, these modules deliver 340 kWp of solar electricity, equivalent to the electricity consumption of 75 typical Swiss households. The system creates enough energy to replace more than 20 tons of CO₂ emissions each year.
