Demand Better Solar

For over 30 years, SunPower has pushed the boundaries of solar energy. From our record-setting technology, to the way we design and build our products, to the customer experience we deliver every day, we constantly demand more of ourselves. Because you deserve all the advantages that better solar can provide for your home. 

Solar Impulse 2

SunPower’s innovation takes flight with Solar Impulse 2. This solar airplane is breaking world records as it soars around the globe, all without a drop of fuel. Our revolutionary Maxeon® solar cells were the hands-down choice to provide maximum power and unmatched reliability.1

We're the ideal solar partner for your home, too. SunPower leads the way in preventing corrosion and breakage, eliminating 85% of the reasons other solar cells fail. Which is why we predict a useful life of 40 years.5 Imagine producing 70% of the solar energy generated today, well into mid-century. Only SunPower delivers long-term value like that.

  • 5. 5 "SunPower Module 40-Year Useful Life," SunPower white paper. 2013. Useful life is 99 out of 100 panels operating at more than 70% of rated power.
NASA Grover in Icecap

Pushing the limits of solar, NASA’s GROVER uses the sun’s energy for scientific research in the frigid climes of Greenland. But this is no job for conventional solar panels. Which is why SunPower technology was called upon to handle whipping winds, minus -22 degree Fahrenheit temperatures and low light conditions.

Rugged solar panels are just as important on your rooftop. Ranked #1 for durability,2 SunPower panels are designed to stand up to the most challenging conditions: hail, rain, snow, heat – even hurricane-force winds. And their unrivaled strength is paired with incredible sensitivity in low light. So your SunPower system will "wake up" early in the morning and keep working late in the day, even when cloudy or foggy.
