Powerful solar cells for your next project

Maxeon Solar Cell Technology

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.

Lightyear One: powered by SunPower Maxeon technology

Using Maxeon 3 solar cells the team at Lightyear has achieved a huge milestone, driving 710km with their Lightyear One prototype! As the farthest range of any solar-powered vehicle to date, Lightyear’s CEO states that even the most efficient electric cars in the market today consume more energy.

Fundamentally different, and better

SunPower Maxeon Solar cells are designed to be different, and proven to be better across more than five cell generations, 3.5 billion cells even in the harshets of conditions. Conventional solar cell lose power over time because of corrosion and breakage. The unique design of SunPower Maxeon solar cells eliminates 86% of the reasons that conventional dells fail1Wohlgemuth, J. “Reliability of PV Systems.” Proceedings of SPIE, 2008.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the MOQ for each cells and interconnection tabs(Purpose is to string the cell together)?

>Maxeon Gen 3: 1500pcs/box
>Maxeon Gen 5: 1200pcs/Box
>Interconnection tabs:1200pcs/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.

Is there any instruction guide so that I can use it safely?

Yes, we have an instruction guide to share so feel free to contact us from inquiry.

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 Interconnection tabs to the cells?

There are a number of methods but often cell customers use a soldering iron.
Also we have an instruction guide that explains how to connect the cell and tabs so feel free to contact us from the inquiry page.
