Powering a Brighter Tomorrow®
Our progress toward building a more sustainable future
The Leader in Solar Sustainability
SunPower is proud to be the winner of the first annual Sustainability Award from pv magazine. We strive to continue to produce panels as clean as the energy they produce.
Organizations earn more LEED Points
SunPower helps builders and businesses earn additional LEED points because our E-Series and X-Series DC panels are Cradle to Cradle Certified™ Bronze, and our packaging materials are recyclable or reusable, reducing construction waste.
Measuring our Impact
Not only do our products help others reduce their carbon footprint, but we measure and reduce our own environmental impact.
SunPower Product Discount Program
Our Product Discount Program enables universities and qualified organizations to purchase SunPower products at a significant discount for educational purposes and community-related projects.
Empowering those in need
We sponsor 3S (Solar Service Station), a social business which provides rechargeable solar lanterns, training and livelihoods to underserved communities in the Philippines. Individuals not only have safe and reliable lighting, but also jobs managing the station and lantern rentals.
Connecting energy and education
We partner with We Care Solar to provide science and technology education while building solar suitcases that are donated to schools, orphanages, and relief camps who need reliable electricity.
