Maxeon® solar panels are designed to be different. And proven to be better even in harsh conditions across more than 1 billion Maxeon cells.
Conventional solar cells lose power over time because of corrosion and breakage. The unique design of SunPower solar cells eliminates 85% of the reasons that conventional cells fail.
The unique design of SunPower Maxeon® technology gives you the most long-term energy in solar – up to 60% more energy in the same space over 25 years.1
And more reliability means more savings.
- 1. SunPower 360W compared to a Conventional Panel on same sized arrays (260W, 16% efficient, approx. 1.6 m2), 4% more energy per watt (based on 3pty module characterization and PVSim), 0.75%/yr slower degradation (Campeau, Z. et al. "SunPower Module Degradation Rate," SunPower white paper, 2013).
SunPower® Maxeon® solar panels are designed and tested to stand up to some of the harshest conditions: temperature swings, battering winds, humidity, hail and more. In fact, SunPower predicts its Maxeon panels will have a useful life of more than 40 years1
And more durability means more savings.
- 1. 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.
Meet SunPower® Maxeon® Cells
No grid lines
Maxeon cells use back-contact conductivity, eliminating unsightly metal gridlines, and enabling them to absorb more sunlight.
Solid metal backing
Metal adds massive strength to each cell, helping it resist corrosion from the elements, while making the entire panel more durable.
Expanding and contracting from daily temperature swings are no problem with our built-in strain relief and thick, triple-redundant connectors.
