For solar cells and solar modules from Q CELLS, potential induced degradation (PID) doesn't exist. Potential induced degradation can lead to a performance loss of 20 % or more, even in the first few months. Q CELLS´ proprietary Anti PID Technology will save you from this fate. Solar cells with Hot-Spots can heat up to such a high temperature that parts of a module burn out. In the worst case scenario, a module can catch fire. The Tra.Q™ code contains information about the place and date of production. This makes it possible to trace certain production conditions for each solar cell.
