In an announcement made by the Silicon Valley-based solar panel producer SunPower, they stated that they have launched a highly-anticipated Next Generation Technology solar panel on Tuesday, which will be the first-ever 400-plus-watt in the industry and the world's most dominant and powerful solar panels.
SunPower's new A-Series solar panels could now be purchased at 400 watts or 415 watts, which will convey 60% more vitality in a similar measure of rooftop space over the initial 25 years contrasted with conventional solar board. Property holders in Europe and Australia would now be able to order the Maxeon 3 400 W solar panel from SunPower, the first solar panel to deliver such power in its area. Americans can also purchase the 415 W solar A-Series in California, and feasibly in more areas by summer.
“SunPower is introducing the world’s first 400-watt residential solar panels as most in the industry are just crossing the 300-watt threshold for home solar. Our record-breaking cell technology and innovative research and development efforts have enabled us to fit more power capacity on rooftops than we ever have before.
Our growing panel portfolio is delivering unprecedented value across global markets that goes unmatched by any other residential solar technology currently available,” said Jeff Waters, CEO of the SunPower Technologies business unit.
SunPower's A-Series solar panels will be made with the organization's Next Generation Technology fifth-age Maxeon solar cells (Gen 5) which were developed at its Silicon Valley Research Facility and required new materials, new tools, and new procedures, in order to convey a 65% bigger cell than previous generations.
Combined with the Maxeon Gen 5 solar cells is one of the solar industry's most highly-powered, factory-integrated microinverter,helping to match the A-Series with SunPower's Equinox stage.
“SunPower solar panels are designed to maximize power production and energy savings for our customers, and we’re only scratching the surface of what’s possible in home solar.
With our innovative solar solutions and services, and our established channels to market, SunPower will continue building on its strong leadership position in distributed generation around the world,” SunPower’s Jeff Waters further added.
SunPower's A-Series and Maxeon 3 have the capability to revolutionize the following period of residential solar adoption. Those with big rooftops can generate considerably more power than with traditional solar panels — possibly opening the entryway for greater grid feed-in opportunity — while those with smaller rooftops that may have been unacceptable for solar in the past now have the choice of creating as much as their neighbors, paying regardless to rooftop space.
