RECORD-SETTING SOLAR TECHNOLOGY

EFFICIENCY MATTERS

The same high efficiency solar technology powering pioneers

across the globe is the same innovative technology that can

help power a record of your own...lower electricity bills.

• SunPower® panels have efficiency ratings above 22%,4

producing more energy in the same space over the warrantied

life of the system compared to conventional panels10

• SunPower panels are the most efficient and highest wattage

solar panels you can put on your roof1

ELEGANCE AND FLEXIBILITY

Elegant panel design with aesthetics in mind mean you don’t

have to sacrifice curb appeal.

• SunPower® Equinox™ technology produces up to 60% more

lifetime energy,3 with 70% fewer visible parts6

• Offset more of your bill to increase potential flexibility for

electric car charging or future family and home additions

BETTER POWER FOR YOUR HOME

BETTER WARRANTY

Every part of the SunPower® Equinox™ system is meticulously designed to work perfectly together, and rigorously tested for long-term reliability. That’s why the SunPower Complete Confidence Warranty is the only solar warranty to cover your whole system (not just the panels)—including quality of product, solar power produced and hassle-free service.

25 years

• Panels

• Microinverters

• Racking

• Power Production

• Labor

10 years

 

• Monitoring hardware

BETTER PRODUCTION

 

One of the most important factors to consider is the amount of electricity a solar system actually produces in kilowatt hours.  Compared to Conventional Panels, SunPower panels produce:

• More energy per rated watt over 25 years

• More electricity at higher temperatures and throughout the day, with better energy conversion across the light spectrum

• More power over time, thanks to the lowest degradation rate in the industry9

BETTER NETWORK OF INSTALLATION CONTRACTORS

You can count on your local SunPower-certified installation contractors to provide the highest standards of quality and customer service.

• Our SunPower-certified network of installation contractors are the elite of the solar industry, rigorously selected, trained and certified

• Installation contractors receive industry-leading design and installation training on SunPower products
