4 Benefits of SunPower Solar Panels
There are a lot of choices out there today for solar panels, as anyone who has thought about solar can testify. As the number of homeowners and businesses who want solar has grown, so has the demand for quality solar panel manufacturing. Most homeowners aren’t experts on how solar panels work. Instead, you’re relying on your solar company or salesperson to help you figure out the best choice.
At PRVL Energy, we use SunPower, which is one of the premier manufacturers of solar panels. They offer top-of-the-line equipment that is built to last and offers some of the best efficiency ratings in the industry. Here are just a few reasons we think SunPower is the best choice for your solar array.
SunPower has been in the business of solar energy for more than 35 years. In 1985 founder Dr. Richard Swanson, a professor of electrical engineering at Stanford University, received his first grant to create a device that would capture energy from the sun and translate it into electricity. Since that time, SunPower has been refining and perfecting solar panels for the residential and commercial market. In an industry where there are plenty of unscrupulous fly-by-night companies trying to make a quick buck, that kind of longevity is valuable.
One of the most important factors in solar energy capture is the efficiency rating of a panel. Not all photovoltaic panels are created equal. A higher efficiency rating means fewer panels to capture the same amount of energy. SunPower offers an industry-leading 22.8% efficiency rating, which is about 60-70% higher than the competition.
Solar panels are a significant investment, and homeowners or commercial businesses need to know they will last. SunPower panels outscored competitors on reliability, energy production, degradation rates, and shading impact. They received the top rating from the Fraunhofer Durability Testing protocols. They are built with durable covers to eliminate degradation from UV light, copper foundations for added strength, and a single 25-year warranty cover the entire panel and all its components.
Quality matters when you make an investment in solar. SunPower panels are built with quality in mind, and have a warranty to back it up. Over the years they average only one returned panel for every 20,000 they install. They are also built with a black-on-black design and a mount that minimizes the appearance on top of your roof. You get a beautiful array and the benefits that solar can provide, both adding to the resale value of your home.
