If you’re planning to add solar panels to your recent roof replacement, then you probably don’t have a clue about the best one to install. There’s a lot to choose from and it can even be overwhelming with having to sift through various product and data comparisons. But out of all the products available, none can surpass the quality and performance you’ll get with SunPower® X-Series Solar Panels.
You might have come across them before, but SunPower X-Series Solar Panels are the most efficient systems available on the market. Not only do they deliver the highest efficiency to their users, but they also provide many other benefits, such as more flexibility, more energy production per panel, premium aesthetics and better performance compared to other products in the market!
As a professional roof replacement contractor, Roofing Crew only wants what’s best for your home or business. That said, SunPower X-Series panels are a great investment, which is why they come highly recommended. Installing SunPower X-Series Panels will not only help you save more in the long run but will provide you other benefits as well. Here’s what you can expect:
Excellent Energy Production
Solar panels that are well-maintained and cared for will last around 25 years. Quality panels made by well-known brands such as SunPower may even last longer, but when you’re considering a solar panel installation, you need to think about how you can maximize its expected lifespan.
SunPower’s X-Series solar panels can give you more energy throughout the year and degrade at a much slower rate. You’ll essentially be getting 45 percent more energy in your first year compared to conventional panels that were newly installed, and by the end of their lifespan, you’ll still get about 80 percent more energy. That means you get 60 percent more energy production throughout an X-Series panel’s life expectancy!
One of the biggest reasons why X-Series panels are better at producing more energy than competing products is because of how we build each panel. With their advancements in solar technology, we can create panels that convert more sunlight into electricity. Our panels are proven to deliver eight to 10 percent more energy per rated watt. Overall, our panels are 21 percent more efficient than conventional panels, which is ideal even for smaller roofs and spaces. That’s 38 percent more power per panel and 70 percent per square foot over 25 years!
Cradle to Cradle Certified™ Designation
As a trusted professional roofing contractor, we also recommend getting SunPower X-Series Panels because their sustainable manufacturing practices and excellent energy production have surpassed the standards of the Cradle to Cradle Certified Products Program. This program evaluates product design, manufacturing and sourcing practices as well as corporate citizenship and ethics principles.
Getting a certification means passing their strict requirements, which includes sourcing materials safe for people and the environment as well as ensuring that the procured materials are recycled at the end of the products’ life. SunPower X-Series Panels are the first products to achieve the Cradle to Cradle Certified Bronze designation. This means you’re getting a product that’s manufactured sustainably to help the environment!
When you hire professional solar and roof repair contractors to install a SunPower X-Series Panel system, you get the most comprehensive warranty in the solar industry. SunPower’s Complete Confidence Panel Warranty, you get hassle-free repair/replacement for any defective panel, as well as 25 years of coverage on defects related to workmanship and materials.
There will hardly be any performance issues to worry about, as the X-Series solar panel has the highest power output in the industry. Even after 25 years, it still retains 92 percent power production! This is also proven by comprehensive third-party studies, which also show how SunPower panels degrade more slowly than conventional panels. This also makes the product the best value for money!
Other Benefits You’ll Get
- Better Flexibility – This is because X-Series Solar Panels generate more electricity from a smaller area. This means you can expand energy production by using additional roof space to add more panels later on!
- More Energy Production From Less Space – Just like we’ve mentioned earlier, you get more power from installing an X-Series solar panel system. That also means you can install fewer panels even in smaller roofs and spaces! Just make sure they’re positioned properly to ensure optimal sunlight conversion.
- Premium Aesthetics – SunPower X-Series solar panels have a black variant that blends harmoniously with your roof, and its design won’t affect your home’s overall architecture. It may even boost its visual appeal and add more value to your property. So long as it’s installed by a professional roofing contractor, SunPower X-Series solar panels will enhance your home’s visual appeal and energy efficiency.
- More Durability – SunPower X-Series solar panels are made with the SunPower Maxeon IBC Cell, which is the only cell built on a solid copper foundation. This makes them practically impervious to corrosion and cracking that normally deteriorate conventional panels.
