Power from the sun is free, but not efficient enough for homes and businesses to want to use. That’s where solar panels come in, converting light into clean energy for everyone to use. We’ll be looking at a few of SunPower’s products in detail today, including their popular Maxeon panels.
If you’re considering switching or upgrading your home energy system, keep reading! This post will have some information about SunPower Solar Panels as well as links to more resources about them if you want more information about them.
SunPower Corporation is an American company based in Irvine, California. They produce and sell solar power systems, panels, and energy storage solutions. The company has been in the solar business since the 1980s when it was founded by a group of scientists from Stanford University. They are now one of the world’s largest manufacturers of solar cells used for electricity generation, and they are also one of the top manufacturers of thin-film solar modules.
Why go solar?
Solar energy is a great source of renewable energy that can help you cut down your electricity bill, as well as reducing your carbon footprint since it doesn’t produce any harmful emissions like nuclear power plants and coal plants do.
How does solar work?
The sun has rays that contain a lot of energy. The light travels in a straight line until it hits something like the wall or the roof of your house. The sunlight is made up of photons, and these photons are absorbed by materials in the house known as absorbers. This is usually done by the glass during windows or on the walls and roof during photovoltaic panels (PV).
Maxeon P Series:
Maxeon cells are a type of solar cell that uses a thin layer of solar-absorbing compound instead of multiple layers to generate power. In order to produce more power, these cells are stacked on top of each other as well as coated in extremely thin layers. SunPower’s Maxeon range was the first product to use this technology in 2011, and since then they have sold over 100 million units. They have also won 17 awards for innovation and environment-friendly innovation from different institutions around the world.
The Powerwall is a home battery storage solution that can be charged by one or more solar panels or electricity from the electrical grid.
Sun4Solar is SunPower’s 4-kilowatt solar panels that are made to reduce the impact on the environment. These innovative solar panels use a technology known as CIGS, or Copper Indium Gallium Selenide.
Maxeon Solar Cells:
Maxeon cells are made of Silicon wafers mounted on a glass panel for better efficiency. These cells are enveloped in another film of the compound, along with an anti-reflection coating, and these films cover all solar cells including the bottom surface and the top surface of the cell.
