Q.CELLS completes two solar PV projects for PG&E in California

Greentech Lead America: Q.CELLS North America, a
subsidiary of Q-Cells SE, has completed two solar PV projects, totaling 30 MW
AC, for Pacific Gas and Electric (PG&E) in California’s Central Valley. The
projects were constructed as part of PG&E’s 250 MW utility-owned generation
(UOG) program.

“Q.CELLS is proud to have completed this portion of
the utility-owned generation program with PG&E. It is our mission to offer
customers, such as PG&E, a sustainable return on their investments in solar
energy projects through our expertise in solar energy system design and
construction, and we look forward to working with our partners to continue
solar energy integration in North America,” said Boris Schubert, CEO of
Q.CELLS North America.

Q-CELLS completed Cantua project, a 20MW (AC) plant, as
well as the Giffen project, a 10 MW (AC) plant, in Cantua Creek, CA. Q-CELLS
has been selected as a preferred partner for the UOG program, which enables 250
MW of utility-owned solar PV to be developed over a five-year period.

“PG&E and our partners today celebrate another
milestone in our solar PV program. These new solar facilities demonstrate our
ongoing commitment to providing our customers with some of the cleanest energy
in the nation. We’re proud that more than half of our electricity comes from
sources that are renewable or emit no greenhouse gases. We applaud the
dedicated workers from Q.CELLS who are helping us harness even more clean
energy from the sun,” said John Conway, Senior Vice President of Energy
Supply for PG&E.
