Hanwha Q CELLS Power Largest Solar System On Rooftop In Ireland


Hanwha Q CELLS modules are powering the largest solar system on a company rooftop in Ireland

A 420 kW solar system powers the chocolate production at Butlers Chocolates headquarters in Dublin. Hanwha Q CELLS, provided 1.590 Q.PRO G4 high performance and high quality solar modules. The rooftop installation was constructed by Hanwha Q CELLS partner Gaelectric Energy Solutions DAC, a company experienced in realizing PV systems for different applications in Ireland. The demonstration project will be Gaelectric's first "behind the meter" installation, the energy will be used exclusively to power Butlers Chocolates production facility.

Daire Friel, Business Development Manager for Gaelectric Energy, said: "By applying solar systems, companies can largely disconnect from rising energy prices and substantially save on electricity cost in the long run. The 420 kWp demonstration project at Butlers Chocolates is a strong evidence for that, as it will supply approximately 14 percent of the base load electricity requirement of the company. We look forward to a meaningful support scheme for renewable energy projects, in order to utilize the so far untapped solar potential of Ireland."

Sean Collier, Key Account Manager for Ireland at Hanwha Q CELLS said: "We are proud to partner with Gaelectric for solar energy projects in Ireland. High quality and high performance modules integrated into a high quality system installation are the basis for sustainable solar investments that pay-off for investors."
