Maxeon Solar Cell Technology
Powerful solar cells for your next project

Solar Car NUNA 8, powered by Maxeon Solar Cells

Solar is not just for your roof anymore. It’s used in a broad range of applications from transportation and scientific endeavours, to charging the growing number of devices that power our lives. And SunPower’s Maxeon solar cell technology is perfect for these types of projects.

Powerful & Durable Solar Cell Technology

The Maxeon solar cell is fundamentally different from conventional solar. And dramatically better at delivering unmatched reliability and the highest efficiency available.* Highest of over 3,200 silicon solar panels, Photon Module Survey, Feb 2014.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I buy less than one box of cells (1500 cells) and one box of tabs (1200)?

Maxeon Solar Technologies cannot sell less than one box.

I see SunPower cells for sale on the internet. Are these sales by Maxeon Solar Technologies also?

These are not SunPower or Maxeon Solar Technologies sales sites. We cannot guarantee the effectiveness or safety of those cells.

Can I buy more cells than shown on the price list?

Yes, please provide a note on how many cells you are interested in and a sales person will get back to you.

What is the difference between High and Medium Cosmetic Quality?

Cells with a high cosmetic quality have slight color variations on the front side. After laminating, the color of the solar cells has a dark appearance even with a black background. Cells with a moderate cosmetic quality have some color variations on the front side. After laminating, the color variations on the cells became less obvious but are often still visible when inspected from short distances.

How can I attach the SunPower tabs to the cells?

There are a number of methods but often cell customers use a soldering iron.
