SunPower Solar Technology

The hardest working solar cells under the sun.

SunPower Equinox® is Better by Design

The SunPower Equinox® system is designed and engineered by one company. Why does this matter? Most solar energy systems include panels, inverters and monitoring technology from different manufacturers, while SunPower designs every component of your Equinox® solar system. Not only will the sleek design of the system look better on your roof, the components of your SunPower system will perform better together for improved efficiency, durability and reliability.

Built to Last

Maxeon® technology is part of every SunPower Equinox® solar panel. Maxeon® solar cells are designed with a solid copper backing to provide the strength and durability to withstand harsh weather conditions and deliver decades of productivity.

Unrivaled Performance

Maxeon®​ cell technology combined with SunPower’s Equinox® system is the most efficient solar panel on the market. More power means you'll see more savings with fewer panels on your roof.

Minimalist Design

Our proprietary InvisiMount® frame is designed to appear "invisible." With a frame that is essentially hidden on your roof, the solar array almost looks like it's floating. The sleek, minimalistic design will complement any architectural style.

How Long Do SunPower Solar Cells Last Compared to Conventional Solar Cells?

Ultimately, your solar panels are only as good as the cells inside them, so it's important to understand the technology behind the panels you choose. This solar cell stress test video compares SunPower solar cells with conventional solar cells, showing the strength and durability of each.

These factors matter, especially in areas with more extreme weather conditions and temperature changes. If you want solar panels designed to last, SunPower is the brightest choice.
