SunPower Panels

Our go-to premium solar panels. Designed to produce more energy over the life of your system.

Why SunPower Solar Panels?

SunPower produces some of the best solar panels on the market, thanks to their almost 40 years of experience. As one of the oldest solar panel brands, their reputation is built on a solid foundation. They are the go-to choice if you are looking for top-of-the-line solar panels.

Premium Panels

We offer two types of SunPower solar panels: Maxeon and Performance.

Maxeon Panels

The Maxeon is the highest quality panel, known for its exceptional efficiency. They don’t come better in our opinion.

The SunPower Maxeon technology sets it apart from other panels in the market. With their unique design, they eliminate 86% of the common reasons why conventional panels fail. However, this comes with a premium price tag.

Performance Panels

On the other hand, the Performance panels are more affordable. Their innovative shingled cell design offers several benefits, including improved shade tolerance when partially shaded.

Performance panels use different technology from Maxeon panels but still offer higher efficiency compared to conventional panels.
