SunPower® Maxeon Panels

Born to break records


Our record-setting Maxeon® technology powers records on air, land and sea – while ensuring that you have the very best solar for your home or business.


Fundamentally different, and better

Maxeon® solar panels are designed to be different. And proven to be better even in harsh conditions across more than 1 billion Maxeon cells. Conventional solar cells lose power over time because of corrosion and breakage. The unique design of SunPower solar cells eliminates 85% of the reasons that conventional cells fail.

Maximum power

Maxeon® technology features the most powerful and high efficiency panel1in home and commercial solar – including the first 400W home solar panel.

And more power means more savings.

  • 1. Based on search of datasheet values from websites of top 10 manufacturers per IHS, as of January 2017.

Unmatched reliability

The unique design of SunPower Maxeon® technology gives you the most long-term energy in solar – up to 55% more energy in the same space over 25 years.1

And more reliability means more savings.

  • 1. SunPower 400 W, 22.6% efficient, compared to a Conventional Panel on same-sized arrays (280 W p-multi, 17% efficient, approx. 1.64 m²), 8% more energy per watt (based on PVSim runs for avg US climate), 0.5%/yr slower degradation rate (Jordan, et. al. Robust PV Degradation Methodology and Application. PVSC 2018).

Trusted durability

SunPower® Maxeon® solar panels are designed and tested to stand up to some of the harshest conditions: temperature swings, battering winds, humidity, hail and more. In fact, SunPower predicts its Maxeon panels will have a useful life of more than 40 years.1

And more durability means more savings.

  • 1. SunPower Module 40-Year Useful Life," SunPower white paper. 2013. Useful life is 99 out of 100 panels operating at more than 70% of rated power

Meet SunPower® Maxeon® Cells

No grid lines

Maxeon cells use back-contact conductivity, eliminating unsightly metal gridlines, and enabling them to absorb more sunlight.

Solid metal backing

Metal adds massive strength to each cell, helping it resist corrosion from the elements, while making the entire panel more durable.

Thick connectors

Expanding and contracting from daily temperature swings are no problem with our built-in strain relief and thick, triple-redundant connectors.
