“SunPower is introducing the world’s first 400-watt residential solar panels as most in the industry are just crossing the 300-watt threshold for home solar,” said Jeff Waters, CEO of the SunPower Technologies business unit. “Our record-breaking cell technology and pioneering research and development efforts have enabled us to fit more power capacity on rooftops than we ever have before. Our growing panel portfolio is delivering unprecedented value across global markets that goes unmatched by any other residential solar technology now available.” 

A-Series Solar Panel Engineered from SunPower’s Next Generation Technology
SunPower is well-known for its patented Maxeon solar cells built on a solid copper foundation for high reliability and performance. They make SunPower® solar panels almost impervious to the corrosion and cracking that typically cause conventional panels to break down. In fact, SunPower solar panels show to have the lowest degradation rate in the industry.

A-Series panels built with SunPower’s fifth-generation Maxeon solar cells, called Gen 5, which perfected at the company’s Silicon Valley Research Facility. This discovery Next Generation Technology required new materials, tools and processes, and resulted in a 65 percent larger cell than earlier generations that absorbs more sunlight and ultimately offers more savings to homeowners.

Combined with Maxeon Gen 5 solar cells is one of the industry’s highest-powered, factory-integrated microinverter, making A-Series ideal for use with SunPower’s Equinox™ platform: the only fully integrated residential solution designed, engineered and warranted by one manufacturer.

Delivering up to 415 watts of electricity, A-Series is the most powerful solar panel. Most powerful  that customers in America can buy for their home today.

Maxeon 3 is Most Powerful Home Solar Panel in Europe and Australia
SunPower also broke the 400-watt, residential solar panel barrier for homeowners in Europeand Australia with the company’s new Maxeon 3 panel which delivers 400 watts of power from its third-generation Maxeon solar cells. In SunPower’s core international distributed generation markets – which include Europe and Australia.

Also, the company is a leading solar provider, increasing volume at a compound annual growth rate of more than 60 percent since 2016. SunPower has had particular success in Europe, doubling its market share. 

A Robust Solar Panel Portfolio 
A-Series and Maxeon 3 join SunPower’s robust residential and commercial solar panel portfolio that includes Performance Series panels. These expanded options give SunPower’s extensive dealer network with a range of power and efficiencies to suit specific customer needs. All SunPower panels backed by its industry-leading 25-year Combined Power and Product Warranty.

In conclusion, more than 10.3 gigawatts of the company’s high-reliability solar technology installed to date. All at residential, commercial and utility-scale projects globally. Collectively, therefore these SunPower® systems are expected to produce about 470 billion kilowatt-hours of solar electricity. Expected over their first 25 years. Thereby offsetting carbon emissions from about 30 million tons of coal burned.
