SunPower Corporation (NASDAQ:SPWR), a global solar technology and energy services provider, is now making its 22 percent efficient X-Series solar panel available to residential customers in Australia.
The X22-Series solar panel from SunPower is the highest efficiency solar panel available today, converting more sunlight to electricity than conventional panels. With an unprecedented 22.2 percent nameplate efficiency, SunPower® panels produce 60 percent more energy from the same space over the first 25 years. It only takes 16 SunPower panels to produce as much power as 25 conventional panels, which means homeowners require fewer panels to generate the same amount of electricity.
"SunPower solar panels offer superior aesthetics and a sleek appearance for any roof, and their high efficiencies offer long-term value to customers by generating more clean energy in less space," said Chris O’Brien, SunPower’s managing director, Australia. "They’re also backed by the industry's best 25-Year Combined Product and Power Warranty. While traditional solar warranties offer minimal coverage for just 10 years, SunPower provides comprehensive protection and peace-of-mind for more than twice as long.”
SunPower’s X-Series solar panels are made with third-generation SunPower® Maxeon® solar cells that are built on a solid metal foundation for high reliability and performance. This makes them virtually impervious to the corrosion and cracking that typically degrade conventional panels, and extremely well-suited for the harsh and varied climatic conditions found across Australia.
Features of the SunPower X-Series panels that make them especially ideal for Australian roofs include:
Homeowners in Australia can now choose from a suite of SunPower solutions including the newly available 360-watt SunPower X22-Series panel, the 345-watt SunPower X21-Series panel with an efficiency of 21 percent, as well as the company’s E-Series solar panels which range from 19 to 20 percent efficient.
