NEWTON, Mass. & BURLINGTON, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--RevoluSun today announced its Massachusetts residential customers now have access to the new SunPower® X-Series Solar Panel (X-Series), the world’s most efficient panel on the market today.
SunPower Corp. (NASDAQ: SPWR), a global solar energy and technology provider headquartered in San Jose, California, recently introduced its X-Series solar panels, a new product line for the residential market. The X-Series delivers more energy, higher reliability and superior aesthetics than conventional solar panels1. The new world-record efficiency of this product line has received third-party validation by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL).
“As a SunPower Elite Dealer, we’re honored to be among the first solar companies to offer this ground-breaking technology to homeowners in Massachusetts and Hawaii,” said Eric Carlson, RevoluSun Principal. “Customers have already ordered more than 400 of the X-Series panels and RevoluSun project developers will begin installing them in the next few weeks. More power per panel means fewer panels to purchase, a smaller roof footprint, quicker installation time, and lower mounting hardware cost. The big picture: X-Series panels will deliver consistent, trouble-free energy during the lifetime of the system.”
The same size as a standard 240-watt panel, the X-Series produces a mammoth 345 watts in the same footprint. Ideal for roofs where space is at a premium or where future expansion might be needed, X-Series panels are designed for demanding conditions such as partial shade or hot rooftop temperatures.
More advantages of the X-Series line include:
Most energy from less space: X-Series solar panels deliver 44 percent more power per panel than conventional panels. This allows the system to create more power in a smaller footprint, with fewer panels.
Most electricity: X-Series solar panels produce more electricity than conventional panels. They convert more sunlight to electricity, producing 75 percent more energy per square foot during the first 25 years.
Most peace of mind: More guaranteed power. SunPower offers the best combined 25-year power and product warranty. The X-Series panels are made with third-generation SunPower Maxeon® solar cells, which are built on a solid copper foundation delivering unmatched performance and reliability over the lifetime of the solar energy system.
SunPower’s straightforward 25-year product warranty is 15-to-20 years longer than traditional solar warranties. In the unlikely event a solar panel needs to be repaired or replaced, an identical or functionally equivalent panel will be provided or the cost of the panel will be fully refunded. The associated labor and transportation costs for customers whose solar panels were installed by RevoluSun, an authorized SunPower dealer, are covered. The new warranty is also written in plain, simple terms that detail the coverage.
1 “Conventional Panel” is a 240W panel, 15% efficient, approx. 1.6 m2, made with Conventional Cells. “Conventional Cells” are silicon cells that have many thin metal lines on the front and 2 or 3 interconnect ribbons soldered along the front and back.
