San Francisco, October, 26 2010 – Q-Cells SE, a global leader in designing, building and managing financially sustainable solar power generation systems, opens its doors to the North American market.
The company, headquartered in Germany with about 2,500 employees in offices throughout Europe and Asia, has officially opened its doors and operations in San Francisco’s SOMA district.
Q-Cells North America will be led by Marc van Gerven, Q-Cells North America CEO, who sees California, with more than 50 percent of the solar power market in the U.S., as the perfect state to make its debut.
