Why a SunPower Helix Solar System is the Right Choice for Your Commercial Application

What happens when a sports team or an entire business organization work well together? Efficiencies soar, outputs increase, and goals are reached. It’s not easy, but when it happens, teamwork can be transformative— everyone on the same page and the team “clicking” leads to seamless integration. This is the inspiration behind the Helix platform from SunPower, the world’s first fully-integrated commercial solar solution. From solar cells to software, each system is designed to interact perfectly, delivering powerful results and exceptional value.

Helix is designed and built by one company to make commercial solar incredibly powerful and elegantly simple. Each component is precision-engineered for fast installation, long-term reliability and impressive returns. Spanning rooftop, ground and carport applications, this clean energy powerhouse also features the advanced intelligence of SunPower® EnergyLink™ software. EnergyLink™ delivers unprecedented visibility and control over your solar energy production and consumption.

SunPower Maxeon solar cells look different because they are different – and better. At the heart of the Helix platform, the seamless surface of the Maxeon cell captures more sunlight, thanks to the innovative copper back-contact design. The patented structure also eliminates the causes for cell breaks and corrosion from temperature swings and damp heat, which account for 86% of the reasons conventional cells fail. Commercial customers enjoy unmatched reliability and more savings over the lifetime of the solar system.

The world-record setting efficiency of SunPower panels is unmatched in the commercial market today. They produce 60% more energy from the same space over the first 25 years than conventional panels, with less degradation over time. In fact, SunPower panels rank #1 in durability according to energy experts. You can feel confident as you invest in the clean energy future of your organization.

The one-stop-shop design approach means that every component is precision-engineered specifically for Helix, including elements like the power station and cable management systems. Built in a quality-controlled factory environment, the electrical connections of the Helix power station are preconfigured for easy interconnection. Inverters and panel boards arrive on-site ready for fast installation, with no field wiring or tools required. Not only does this reduce installation time, it greatly improves system reliability. After all, when 100% of manual power station wiring is removed, so are the human errors that may come with it. A rooftop can be a brutally unforgiving place, with temperature swings, intense sunlight, hail and high winds. Well-secured energy cables are crucial to protecting your investment. SunPower developed this innovative new way to ensure that wires and cables are protected from abuse and abrasion. Incredibly simple and easy to install, Helix cable clips, cones and trays all help to prevent costly downtime.

The SunPower Helix mechanical system has been perfected over 30 years of product innovation in order to maximize energy potential. With flexible ballast and anchor options, industry-leading roof coverage, and a 10-degree tilt angle, Helix perfectly optimizes the power density and energy yield potential of your roof. Add to that the high-efficiency solar panels, and you get more power per panel, more panels per roof, and significantly greater savings. That’s 63% more power per roof and 72% more energy over the life of your system. What’s more, the lightweight Helix mechanical system can be installed without tools and is made of exceptionally strong and durable materials. So you can be sure your solar system will deliver the energy you expect for decades to come.
