According to the Solar Energy Industries Association, the number of solar system installations has doubled in the last 3 years. To put that in perspective, the last three years have seen more solar installations than the past 40 years combined! We want to talk about why SunPower A-Series panels have become our customer’s most popular choice.
SunPower Model: One Umbrella
Not so many years ago residential solar panel companies were putting together solar systems with components made from a variety of vendors. It wasn’t until recently that SunPower decided to design and develop their entire Equinox solar panel system in-house (in America). Having one manufacturer for all pieces of the technology provides the customer with a more efficient and reliable system able to convert sunlight to power at a much quicker rate. In fact, the SunPower Equinox system has a world-record-setting 22% efficiency rate: it produces 60% more energy than conventional panels over 25 years!
SunPower has several options for residential installations. We’re going to take a look at the benefits of the A-Series system, SunPower’s newest and most advanced solar panel for residential customers. The A-Series system has 400-watt solar panels providing more power than ever with fewer panels.
The individual cells in the A-Series system are Maxeon Gen 5: 65% larger than prior Maxeon generations. This upgrade boosts efficiency as the cells are able to convert even more sunlight into electricity. The A-series continues to use impressive SunPower microinverters, eliminating the need for large utility boxes on the side of your home and instead hiding them under individual panels. All other electrical equipment is also hidden under the panels: panels are mounted on the roof using Invisimount hardware, a low-profile design across all SunPower series. Integrating the microinverters behind the panels and mounting the solar system on Invisimount hardware hides everything but the panels and provides the clean and streamlined design that SunPower is known for, something that conventional solar systems cannot match.
Besides the amazing technology that SunPower continues to deliver, SunPower stands out based on their experience. Over the last 30 years, SunPower Solar has produced more than 2.8 Billion solar cells for the market. That’s enough cells to circle the earth eight times. 500,000 homeowners have chosen SunPower systems because they trust the quality innovation and dedication to green energy advancement. SunPower has 750+ patents on green energy products and they remain the only manufacturing company to offer complete solar solutions.
25-Year Leading Warranty
SunPower also protects their solar customers with a 25-year warranty. It’s the only home solar warranty that covers the entire system. Many manufacturers only cover the panels under their warranty. The SunPower warranty covers everything including performance, labor, and parts.
