Sunpower solar panels review

Average Customer Rating:

Tier 1Sunpower Corporation's history goes back to the early 70's when founder Richard Swanson, looking for a way to deal with the oil crisis, looked with increasing interest at solar cell power, which at that time, was used only in satellites. Now, almost 40 years later, Sunpower Corporation has become one of the largest companies providing solar panels to utility, commercial and residential markets alike, thanks to their proprietary systems and over 200 patents for solar technology.

Sunpower solar panels are the most expensive on the market, but are they worth it? That's a great question and we answer it in depth in this blog post:

Are Sunpower Panels worth their very high price?

Over the decades, their products have proved so efficient and high quality, that they have been used to power some of the most delicate outer space exploration missions and to allow the first solar airplane prototype, Solar Impulse, to fly for 26 consecutive hours only on solar energy.

Sunpower Corporation is also aware of the importance of conducting a business that protects the environment, and the Cradle to Cradle certification, their ongoing effort in disclosing their carbon footprint along with an active participation as a Circular Economy 100 member make Sunpower Corp one of the leading companies in the solar energy industry.

You can read lots of Sunpower reviews from Australian consumers below as well as a link to reviews of the installer they bought them from. As you can see, most of the Sunpower reviews are 5 star. These really are great panels, if you can afford them.

327w Sunpower panels x 16 = 5.2 kWin total (theoretically – as not ideally positioned facing North) Routinely produces over 4.5kW during the day.

Sunpower are exceptional quality. These panels are performing as good as the day they were installed. They are expensive (a potential drawback), however the panels are larger with the highest wattage so if you have limited roof space, this could be a viable option. If you're interested in a consistent performer in both output and efficiency, look no further.

These panels seem to perform better than expectations, often generating 10 or more KWH on a sunny summer day from a 1.5kw system. The downside is that they were considerably more expensive than many other panels on the market.
