Hanwha Q CELLS modules power largest solar system on company rooftop in Ireland

* 420 kWp rooftop solar system on Butlers Chocolates headquarters in Dublin
* Photovoltaic self-consumption bears great potential for commercial and
industrial companies in Ireland
* High performance and quality modules are key for sustainable ROI

[Thalheim, Germany / Dublin, Ireland, September 4, 2017] – A 420 kW solar
system powers the chocolate production at Butlers Chocolates headquarters in
Dublin. Hanwha Q CELLS GmbH, German subsidiary of the world´s largest
producer of high performance solar cells, Hanwha Q CELLS Co., Ltd. (NASDAQ:
HQCL), 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% 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.”
