How do solar panels work?
Solar energy works by capturing the sun’s energy and turning it into electricity for your home or business.
Why should I consider SunPower, when some competitors offer higher wattages?
The “efficiency” of a solar panel determines how much power can be generated in the same amount of space (power density). Some solar panels try to compensate for lower efficiency by creating larger-sized panels to increase wattage, but this does not solve a homeowner’s power needs since the home’s available roof space cannot change. SunPower’s high efficiency panels produce more power in the same roof space than conventional panels.
