Residential Home Solar With SunPower and BP Builders
More power means more savings. SunPower’s unique technology is built-to-last when conventional solar panels lose power with age. No other home solar technology converts more sunlight than SunPower, giving customers an incredible 70 percent more energy in the same space over 25 years, resulting in more savings over time. Plus the “25-Year Complete Confidence Warranty“ leads the solar industry by covering YOUR ENTIRE SYSTEM for 25 years, not just the solar panels. One Company, One Warranty. How does SunPower do it? By making highly reliable panels, rated #1 for durability.
The next big step in Solar
The SunPower® A-Series panel is capable of producing 400 or 415 watts. Remember, a solar panel is only as good as the cells inside. The SunPower® Maxeon® Gen 5 solar cell is 65% larger than prior generations, converting more sunlight into electricity. The new panels are a little bit skinnier and a little taller – about 40 inches by 72 inches. Overall, it’s a larger panel than SunPower’s panels that produce 370 watts. The benefit is that they generate the same amount of power with fewer panels on the roof. For instance, instead of 20 panels, a homeowner might only need 17. This larger size panel is great for ground-mount systems.
Additionally, SunPower A-Series just blew past the competition with a 9000 pa on both Wind and Snow test loads. Which is roughly equivalent to >240 mph wind and > 180 lb/sq ft of snow. To put that into perspective, the strongest 1-minute sustained hurricane winds on record come from 2015’s Hurricane Patricia, which clocked in at 215 mph. And, 180 lb/sq ft snow rating is roughly equivalent to 12 feet of snow buildup. Go solar in confidence with the A-Series; designed and engineered to withstand hot, cold, wind, snow, the stratosphere and the polar ice cap.
Less solar panels makes for a more efficient installation process and uses fewer materials. With these larger A series panels, there’s less metal per watt, fewer rails per watt and fewer roof attachments per watt. This typically results in a faster installation process, which means the installers will spend less time on the roof..
Integrated Design, Unmatched Performance.
The SunPower Equinox™ platform is a testament to SunPower’s design philosophy when technology is designed to work together, it works better. No other system is designed and engineered by one company. From solar cell to software, SunPower Equinox systems generate more power, are more reliable and look better than conventional home solar power systems.
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. Because SunPower’s panels produce more energy, customers need fewer panels and less roof space to generate the same amount of energy. SunPower’s panels are uniquely designed to perform better in low light, “waking up” earlier in the morning and “staying awake” later in the day, generating energy even when it’s cloudy or foggy outside.
With SunPower’s patented software, homeowners can also measure the amount of energy their solar system is producing and the total energy consumption of their home, another way SunPower helps customers manage their energy and maximize their savings. Because of real-time monitoring you’ll have the peace of mind to know that your system is operating as promised.
In addition, all of SunPower’s panels are backed by an industry-leading 25 year combined power and product warranty, the “25 Year Complete Confidence Warranty”. So you can feel confident that you invested wisely.
Why SunPower? Durability and Maxeon Solar Cell Technology
Rated #1 in durability in third-party testing, no other home solar technology stands up to the elements better than SunPower even in the most the most challenging conditions: hail, snow, extreme temperatures and hurricane-force winds.
The maxeon cells seamless surface captures more sunlight thanks to the innovative back-contact design. The patented cell 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. You enjoy reliability and savings over the lifetime of your system.
While SunPower is not the only manufacturer who puts all the wires on the back of the cell, they have an additional efficiency premium because they build their cells on a solid copper foundation. This helps the cell operate more efficiently. SunPower has other improvements that help as well. Anti-reflective glass helps panels absorb more light and the use of ultra-pure silicon that goes into the cells. All these things together make SunPower cells unique and help their panels harvest more energy.
As one of the world’s most innovative and sustainable energy companies, SunPower provides a diverse group of customers with complete solar solutions and services.
