Hard Working, Durable Panels
You can depend on these panels to start working earlier in the day, convert as much sunlight as possible, and keep working as late as possible.
Don’t Worry About Cell Failures
Over time, conventional solar panels will fail as the result of corrosion or breakage. SunPower® panels resist 85% of the reasons that conventional solar cells fail or decrease productivity. This way, you can depend on your home or commercial system for decades.
Get the Whole Package
SunPower® solar panel systems and storage systems are designed to work together.
It’s no longer necessary for property owners to build their own ideal solar energy systems by piecing together technology from different manufacturers. Instead, you can rely on the SunPower Equinox® system and SunVault™ Storage for seamless and dependable energy production and storage solutions.
One of the Best Whole-System Warranties
The SunPower Equinox® comes with an incredible advantage – it is the only home solar warranty to cover the entire system for 25 years, including parts, labor, and performance. We’re able to offer this industry-leading warranty because one company manufactures every part of the SunPower Equinox® system.

Frequently Asked Questions
Ultimately, the only way to get an accurate answer to this question is to schedule a consultation with a solar installation professional who will visit your home in person. You can depend on Solara Solar to send out a representative as soon as possible to tell you how many panels your home will need, as well as the necessary wattage.
You can get a rough estimate by finding your hourly energy use on your electricity bill, multiplying it by the number of peak sunlight hours (normally 3 or 4), and dividing it by the average wattage of solar panels. This average can range from 150 to 370, so we would recommend dividing by 300.
The formula is: (hourly energy usage x peak sunlight hours) / 300 = the number of panels. The result will likely be between 17 and 42 panels.
The best types of solar panels are typically made out of monocrystalline silicon, which has fewer impurities than polycrystalline silicon. Panels made up of monocrystalline silicon can turn more sunlight into energy because the electrons in the sunlight are less likely to be blocked by impurities typically found in polycrystalline silicon.
SunPower® panels are made of the highest efficiency monocrystalline silicon available. These panels harness record-breaking efficiency of up to 22.8%, which results in the highest performance of any panels on the market today. You can learn more about different types of solar panels here.
High-efficiency panels will produce more energy while taking up as little space on your roof as possible. This will benefit the curb appeal of your property and give you enough room to add to your system or expand your home. Using fewer materials and less energy to create your solar system is also great for the planet.
Yes. Corrosion will eventually begin to affect any type of solar panel. However, SunPower® panels are designed to resist 85% of the reasons that conventional panels wear out over time. This, paired with the fact that all SunPower® products are produced by one company, allows us to give our customers an industry-leading warranty and some of the highest-performing panels on the market.
The silicon and redundant connections of the cells are supported by a metal foundation that makes them highly impervious to corrosion and damage. We can confidently predict that SunPower® panels will last up to 40 years and produce more energy than conventional panels.
Still not sure whether SunPower® panels are tough enough for your roof? You can rest assured knowing that NASA has chosen SunPower® for a wide variety of different experimental and exploratory applications. SunPower® panels can also endure saltwater, and they were used to power the only plane to operate on solar energy.
