A Legacy of Innovation
Successfully delivering a solar power plant is complicated. We know, because we’ve spent a lot of time designing, developing, constructing and operating some of the largest solar power plant installations around the world.
Today, we’re channeling all the knowledge from our past into innovative solar panels—panels that exceed the expectations of the EPCs and developers delivering today’s large-scale solar power plants. Our shared experience and understanding translates to better performing, highly reliable technology you can put your trust in.
A New White Paper Is Here For You:
SunPower Performance Technology for
Reliability is more critical than ever to realising the LCOE benefits of today’s large-format, high-power solar panels. SunPower Performance panels are engineered to mitigate the detrimental effects of real-world operation of solar plants.
In our newly published whitepaper, learn about how SunPower technology uses unique materials to decrease or eliminate power loss from:
• Breakdown of soldered cell connections;
• Cell cracking;
• Debris shading and soiling;
• Potential Induced Degradation (PID);
• Hotspots, and more.

The World’s Leading Energy Providers Choose SunPower Technology
Over the course of our 35+ years in solar, SunPower technology has been installed in more than 5 GW of solar power plants across 6 continents, enabling insightful relationships with some of the world’s most sophisticated utilities, developers and EPCs.
Panels Uniquely Engineered for Large-scale Solar Power Plant Installations
The innovative shingled cell design of SunPower Performance Panels delivers more energy, and savings, over traditional front contact panels. With more than 3 GW deployed across 60+ countries, SunPower Performance panels are the leading shingle cell panel on the market today and the ideal choice for solar power plants.
While many manufacturers are still in the early stages of developing shingled cell technology, we’re delivering the fifth-generation of SunPower Performance panels. This latest generation of shingled cell technology builds upon years of design and engineering innovation, while rapidly scaling manufacturing to meet demand from solar power plant EPCs and developers around the globe.

Panel Choice Matters in Solar Power Plants
Cell and Panel Manufacturing
We know it takes a lot of time and resources to bring a solar power plant project to life.
You need a technology partner that not only understands the risk you’re taking, but how their products impact every stage of your project.
High power, high performance: SunPower Performance panels optimize project layout, reducing real estate cost.
And our use of third-party PAN files ensures more accurate predictive modelling for your project.
Project financiers mitigate risk by backing solar power plants that utilize technology with a proven track record.
SunPower panels are backed by Tier 1 manufacturer ratings from BNEF and IHS, while having the financial backing of Total S.A., the world's 6th largest public energy company.*Forbes, The World's Largest Oil & Gas Companies 2019. Forbes Global 2000.
Engineering, Procurement and Construction
EPC firms want a technology that is reliable, easy to install and keeps solar power plant construction costs down; while project owners want a technology they can trust to maximize their ROI.
Both can achieve greater peace of mind with SunPower technology.
Operations & Maintenance
What good is technology that constantly breaks down and needs attention?
SunPower Performance panels are backed by the SunPower Complete Confidence Warranty, offering proven reliability to last in the field well beyond their warranty.
Leadership in Sustainable Manufacturing
SunPower technology was recognized with the first annual Sustainability Award from pv magazine. We strive to continue to produce panels as clean as the energy they produce. Read more about our sustainability practices.
A Global Footprint
We’ve designed, developed, constructed, operated and supplied more than 5 GW of SunPower technology to some of the largest solar power plants around the world.
