Hanwha Q CELLS to supply panels for rooftop solar projects at South Korean gas stations

Solar cell and module manufacturer Hanwha Q CELLS has signed a multiparty MoU, under which it will supply rooftop solar modules at various gas stations across South Korea. The company will provide these panels to gas stations that are members of the Korea Oil Station Association. The projects will save land space by utilising the unused space of gas stations’ rooftop, which are typically taller than other adjacent structures in South Korea. In addition, these rooftop projects will be connected to the distributed generation system. According to preliminary estimates, all 13,000 gas stations in Korea can install rooftop solar to generate 300 MW, which could be sufficient to meet the electricity demand of 90,000 households every year. Reportedly, gas station owners can receive renewable energy certificates by installing solar.
