Q CELLS announced a strategic partnership with Enphase to develop Enphase Energized Q CELLS AC Modules (ACMs) based on seventh-generation Enphase IQ microinverters. The first Enphase and Q CELLS-developed ACMs will be available from major distributors in the U.S. starting July 15th. The Q.PEAK DUO BLK-G6+/AC 340-345 ACM features the Enphase IQ 7+ microinverter and is the first Enphase Energized ACM from Q CELLS to come to market.
“I have great confidence in the quality and reliability of the products from both Q CELLS and Enphase, so this new ACM is certain to be a rock-solid combination,” said Dewaine Dennis Sr., founder and co-owner at Quantum Solar Designs. “This new Q CELLS AC Module fills an important gap in the mid-market and represents a great way to deliver value to both installers and homeowners. We are excited about offering Q CELLS AC modules to our customers.”
The Q.PEAK DUO BLK-G6+/AC produces outstanding yields thanks to power classes of up to 345 Wp and efficiencies of up to 19.5%. These performance values are possible through Q CELLS’ Q.ANTUM DUO monocrystalline half-cell technology, combined with state-of-the-art circuitry and 6-busbar cell design. The Q.PEAK DUO BLK-G6+/AC also offers long-term reliability with a 25-year product warranty and a degradation rate that guarantees 85% initial performance in the 25th year.
The Q.PEAK DUO BLK-G6+/AC Enphase Energized ACM allows installers to be more competitive through improved capital management, reduced labor costs, improved SKU management with accelerated design, and faster installation times. The Q.PEAK DUO BLK-G6+/AC modules are assembled in the USA at Q CELLS’ manufacturing facility in Dalton, GA.

Enphase IQ details
The seventh-generation Enphase IQ microinverter system provides a complete AC solution that produces no high-voltage DC. Enphase Energized AC modules from CELLS work seamlessly with the full suite of Enphase IQ accessory products: the lighter two-wire Enphase Q Cable, the Enphase IQ Combiner 3 with pre-installed Enphase IQ Envoy gateway, as well as the Enphase Encharge energy storage system.
Solar installers who select the Q.PEAK DUO BLK-G6+/AC can monitor their solar fleets remotely using the powerful cloud-based Enphase Enlighten monitoring system, provide their customers the peace-of-mind of a 25-year module warranty, and rely on the Enphase support team to deliver an outstanding customer experience.
Have you checked out our YouTube page?
We have a ton video interviews and additional content on our YouTube page. Recently we debuted Power Forward! -- a collaboration with BayWa r.e. to discuss higher level industry topics as well as best practices / trends for running a solar business today.
Our longer running side project is The Pitch -- in which we have awkward discussions with solar manufacturers and suppliers about their new technology and ideas so that you don't have to. We've discusses everything from residential rail-less deck attaching and home solar financing to large-scale energy storage value stacking and utility-driven new home solar + storage microgrids.
We also post our Project of the Year announcements there! Interviews with this year's winners will be up starting the week of Nov. 8. Head there and subscribe today to stay on top of all this extra stuff.
