As part of our commitment to providing the highest-quality solar power systems on the market, Renova Energy only installs SunPower solar panels on our residential customers’ roofs. They’re the most efficient, long-lasting and attractive solar panels on the market today.
How efficient are they? Most solar panels are graded at 15% to 18% efficiency, meaning they absorb 15% to 18 % of the sunlight they receive, turning that percentage of sunlight into electricity for your home.
SunPower solar panels transform 21.5% to 22% of the sunlight they receive into electricity. That extra 4% to 7% efficiency means you need fewer SunPower panels on your roof to generate the electricity you need.
And may even give you room to expand your system if your energy needs increase in the future.
SunPower panels are warrantied to last 25 years or more of rain, shine, wind, ice and other weather conditions to keep on delivering reliable power to your home. However, their expected life is 40 years!
The panels’ construction is the key. They feature full copper backings to combat moisture and dramatic temperature swings. These solid copper backings make the panels massively strong and almost impervious to corrosion.
In fact, while hot temperatures cause conventional panels to produce less energy, SunPower panels maintain performance, producing 38 percent more power per panel.
And the thick connectors between cells on the panels ensure that expansion and contraction from daily temperature changes is not a problem.
In fact, SunPower panels are backed by the best 25-year Combined Power and Product Warranty in the industry. They are so well constructed that only 1-in-20,000 SunPower panels are ever returned under this warranty.
The solar cells in SunPower panels are free of the metal ribbons striped across conventional panels. That means they also look better on your roof.
Now Is the Time
Solar technology’s cost-effectiveness has been steadily rising. The average cost of a residential solar system has dropped 45% since 2010, according to the Solar Energy Industries Association.
Meanwhile, the federal government’s 30% percent investment tax credit for installing solar is set to expire at the end of 2016. So if you haven’t yet fulfilled your goal of going solar, now’s the time! The terms for transitioning to energy-independence have never been better.
