Why Select SunPower as a Top Company

Other Key SunPower Features
Additional factors that contributed to SunPower’s high rating with the Solar Power Authority include the following:
- 40-year solar panel lifespan — although warrantied for 25 years (an industry-leading offer), the Solar Power Authority lists the expected useful life of SunPower photovoltaic cells as forty years, another top figure in the solar industry.

The average number for competitors’ systems is 24 solar panels. Although each panel may be more expensive due to its built-in quality, the total number of panels required is far less, balancing the extra cost per panel.
