SunPower Maxeon 5 AC Modules

Maximise your savings, and minimise your headaches.

SunPower Maxeon 5 combines powerful energy production, with the highest durability you can buy1 backed by an industry-leading warranty2 .

When combined with Enphase microinverters it is, quite simply, the most advanced solar technology for your roof.

Better technology. Better together.

Powerfully Reliable Solar Power

String Inverter System

In a conventional setup, one inverter controls the output of a whole solar array, a design with a single point of failure.

SunPower AC Module

SunPower AC Modules distribute this risk across every panel through a far more reliable technology: Enphase microinverters, and it’s all backed by a 40-year warranty* .

Solar That Works Harder. And Smarter.

Each SunPower AC module functions independently, making your whole system more reliable, and your rooftop more productive. With conventional technology, the system performs only as well as its weakest panel. This can dramatically reduce output due to shade or other real-world challenges, even small debris like leaves.

SunPower Maxeon Series Solar Panels

SunPower Maxeon solar panels are an investment of proven quality and unmatched reliability. SunPower, an innovative and cutting edge solar company, field-tested 800,000 solar panels over 8 years at 264 sites and the Maxeon panels demonstrated the lowest degradation rates in the industry. The Maxeon panel is one of the best solar panels on the market.

As a result, SunPower panels are not only an unrivaled product, but come with an unmatched warranty too. The SunPower Maxeon Panel 40-Year Warranty is the solar industry’s longest warranty, because comparison studies of Maxeon and conventional panels show you are 100 times more likely to return a standard panel than an M series panel. This incredible warranty covers the panel and its performance, including broader coverage for panel repair and replacement compared to other industry-standard warranties. Plus, SunPower warranty is easier to process, due to the low demand on warranty services, and backed by extensive third-party testing and field data from over 33 million panels across the globe.

SunPower Maxeon vs Conventional Panels

SunPower Maxeon solar panels deliver a premium energy generation technology, which offers greater quality, durability and reliability than conventional solar panels. But what do we mean by conventional panels?

Conventional solar panels are made with traditional silicon solar cells, commonly made with thin metal lines on the front and interconnected ribbons soldered along the front and back. These solar panels measure around 1.94 m2 in size, 310W and average a 16% efficiency rate. They also have a degradation rate of approximately 0.75% per year.

 

Sunpower Maxeon 3 4

The SunPower M series panels are quite simply a higher quality across all industry standards, in fact, the SunPower M3 was the first ever 400W solar panel in the European and Australian home solar market. The Maxeon panel range delivers greater performance with an average of up to 35% higher energy production over the first 25 years than conventional panels, and their average degradation rate is a  rock bottom 0.2% per year (approximately). Overall, SunPower solar panels deliver exceptional results through unmatched solar panel efficiency, greater durability and a longer useful life than industry standard solar panels.

Another point of comparison for the ethically minded and socially conscious is that SunPower Maxeon solar panels have pioneered sustainability efforts in solar manufacturing. The Maxeon DC panels have been Cradle to Cradle Certified™. The Cradle to Cradle certification is a prestigious designation that demonstrates the high quality of a product based on rankings of material health, material reutilization, renewable energy use, water stewardship and social fairness. SunPower’s Mexico manufacturing facility was re-certified as Zero Waste to Landfill (facility diverts more than 99% of its waste, with 1% or less going to landfills) by the NSF Sustainability in March 2020 and remains the only solar panel manufacturing facility to achieve this.
