Maxeon Quality Cells
Our Maxeon® solar cell is fundamentally different. And dramatically better. Compared to a conventional panel, a SunPower solar panel produces 70% more energy over the first 25 years. Talk about illuminating.
- Solid copper foundation adds massive strength.
- Unique light-trapping surface grabs more power.
- Ultra-pure silicon delivers optimal power conversion.
- Innovative design of SunPower solar cells drastically reduces cell failure.
SunPower Monitoring System
You’re on the move. We’ve got you covered. Easily track your solar investment – anywhere, anytime – with the SunPower Monitoring System. It’s a free app for your iPhone®, iPad®, or Android™ mobile device. Here, you can clearly view details about how much energy your system produces each day, month, or year. Plus, with our convenient Bill Savings Estimate, the SunPower consumption monitoring kit provides an estimate of savings achieved. The savings are calculated based on the solar energy produced by your system and the energy used by your household. Because we care about the planet, too, the Environmental Savings feature provides an estimate of your reduced emissions.
All this power, at your fingertips.
Solar panels have existed for a long time, but their basic design hasn’t changed much in 40 years. Traditional, grid-shaped solar panels are created using a grid of metallic paste as a conductor on the front of the cell. Unfortunately, this common design a) creates a shading lattice over the very surface that is supposed to be stimulated by sunlight and b) does not use a very effective conductor.
Enter, Maxeon cell technology. These solar panels, used by SunPower, have NO grid lines on the front of the cell. They also have a solid copper backing, which acts as the conductor. This adds strength and greatly increases power output.
A total eclipse of conventional solar.
SunPower home solar systems are meticulously designed and tested to stand up to some of the harshest conditions: temperature swings, battering winds, humidity, hail and more.
Traditional solar panels have weak connections between each cell. If these connections break, an entire cell can be lost. Plus, they are vulnerable to corrosion.
SunPower solar cells have thick connections between each cell. Their solid copper backing protects from corrosion, and grants each cell much higher tensile strength.
Low bills meet high design.
SunPower Signature™ Black solar panels are elegant. Tasteful. They speak of your good taste while reducing your monthly energy statement.
