SunPower’s products have double the lifespan of most solar panels. That’s because they’re made of copper and pure silicon (compared to metal paste used on conventional cells), which reduces the risk of failure by 85 percent. If by chance one breaks under warranty, SunPower will remove the broken panel, ship, and install a new panel free-of-charge.
World’s Most Efficient Solar Panels
The National Renewable Energy Laboratory, a federal organization that analyzes energy efficiency, verified that SunPower’s Maxeon solar cells operate at 22 percent efficiency—the highest on the market. Compared to the industry standard of 15–18 percent, this is a big deal. SunPower’s solar cells also produce 70 percent more energy over the first 25 years than any other solar panel. With this kind of efficiency, you can pay for your system faster.
Because SunPower’s solar panels are so efficient, you need less of them to power your home, which can have a tremendous impact on the overall aesthetic of your house:
Eight out of 10 customers prefer SunPower’s Signature™ Black solar panels over conventional design. It’s most likely because these solar panels are smaller, don’t have grid lines, have a low profile frame, and feature anti-reflective black solar cells. Instead of detracting from your home, these solar panels blend right in.
Solar Impulse 2 is the first solar powered airplane to fly around the world. Why should you care? Because it used SunPower technology to set this record.
SunPower’s EnergyLink™ app is very unique. With the touch of a button, you can see how much power your solar panels are producing, how much grid power you’re utilizing, and your lifetime savings estimate in real-time. Plus, you can break down data by the day, week, month, year, or lifetime. And, you can get support easily right from the app. If you’re going to monitor the system yourself, this is a lifesaver. Even if you’re not, it gives you instant insight other companies don’t offer. The only downside is that installing technology for this app costs extra.
SunPower is owned by Total, the fourth largest publicly-traded energy company in the world. With this kind of backing, you can trust that SunPower will be able to support your needs.
When you finance or buy, you receive tax credits. Normally, you only receive tax incentives if you buy your system in-full. These can return thousands of dollars to you, and make your solar system profitable.
