Are All Solar Panels the Same? How to Know if You’re Getting a Good Deal

You’ve decided to go solar, have already met with a reputable solar installation company and you’ve just received their proposal to install panels on your roof. So, how can you tell if the solar panels are really the “good ones”?

At Sunrise Solar Solutions, we strive to build the highest-quality solar energy systems possible using the best technology available. That’s why we’ve just secured a partnership with SunPower to feature the SunPower Equinox™ AC solar panels with all of our installations.

To see for yourself, we recommend that our customers check the following criteria to evaluate the quality of the solar panels to be installed on your home or business:

  • Know the Reputation of the Solar Panel Manufacturer: With its longstanding 30-year history, SunPower has created a great reputation, one we at Sunrise are proud to be a part of. SunPower is known worldwide as a top-line innovator in solar technology and stands at the forefront of the most advanced, cutting-edge innovations. SunPower’s panels have been tested and proven to generate more power than conventional panels, are more attractive and in the long run will save you more money. In fact, even prior to our partnership with them, the majority of our customers had expressed a preference for SunPower panels based on the aesthetics, quality and performance. The bottom line is that SunPower offers panels that look better and with higher efficiency, a longer life span and damage resistance.
  • Appearance: The two main factors to look for are how the panels will fit into the lines of your roof and the appearance of the solar panels themselves. SunPower has created a minimalist design with a sleek black panel and no grid lines, as well as its proprietary InvisMount frame that is designed to offer a sleek look that complements any architectural style.
  • Efficiency: Compared to a conventional panel, a SunPower solar panel has been reported to produce 70% more energy over the first 25 years. The SunPower Equinox system is known to feature the most efficient solar panels on the market and therefore, offers the most power that translates into more savings and fewer panels on your roof.
  • Warranty: SunPower’s solar panels are backed with a 25-year Combined Power and Product Warranty – the best in the industry. In addition, our Sunrise experts are here and available to you; located right in your neighborhood to monitor your system and make sure all is running seamlessly.
