What Sets SunPower Solar Panels Apart?

September 16, 2020

Did you know that not all solar panels are created equal? Each time that you drive by a home with solar panels installed onto the roof, you could be looking at completely different types of panels. There are a variety of methods that have been used when designing and manufacturing solar panels. When considering adding solar power to your home, you’ll want to make sure that you pick the best solar power system specifically for your home, roof, and location.

What are Monocrystalline Solar Panels?

Fact about solar power degradation time graphic
At BlueSel, we specialize in installing SunPower monocrystalline silicon solar panels. These panels are made by melting down pure silicon, which is then formed into bars before cutting into wafers. Remember, the purer the silicon, the higher the efficiency of the panels. 

SunPower monocrystalline solar panels have been repeatedly proven to be the most highly efficient and longest lasting panels available on the market today, and the foreseeable future. Our panels currently have the lowest degradation rate in the industry at only .25%. Their extended lifespan and the ability to produce the highest amount of power while requiring the least amount of space makes monocrystalline solar panels the perfect choice for residential homes.

What is Maxeon Technology?

Maxeon Technology® powers SunPower by BlueSel solar panels. This innovative technology enables your home to receive unmatched reliability and the highest efficiency over any other conventional panels installations. Maxeon cells are built with a copper foundation and unique light-trapping surfaces. They add strength and the ability to capture more sunlight, creating a 30% efficiency increase in power over conventional solar panels. 

They also look pretty sharp if we do say so ourselves. Gone are the days of ugly solar panels becoming an eye-sore on your rooftop. Maxeon solar panels are anti-reflective, allowing little-to-no solar glare, and feature a sleek black surface, removing the view of unflattering grid lines from the panels. 

The solid copper foundation also has regional benefits as it’s non-corrosive. This is essential for New England solar panel installations due to the unpredictable and sometimes harsh nature of our climate and the highly corrosive saltwater in coastal areas. Durable connectors between the cells allow them to easily contract or expand depending, making them adaptable to the constantly changing New England weather conditions.
