You want the most reliable solar panels for your home installed by a company that will provide you with the highest level of service and workmanship. Yet, with demand for residential solar power systems at record levels and the number of solar panel installers increasing accordingly, it can be daunting to find the solar panel installer that’s right for you.

Benefits of working with a SunPower solar energy installer include the following:
- Extensively Trained: Solar technology is complex and requires skilled, trained professionals to ensure safe, optimized system performance. Your solar dealer should be a licensed and insured contractor as well as a solar energy specialist trained specifically for home solar installation. SunPower is the only solar panel manufacturer with an ISPQ-Accredited Training Program, the international standard that ensures continuity, consistency and quality in the delivery of renewable energy training. Dealers pursuing SunPower certification in design and installation begin at the “Associate” level, then progress to “Advanced” and finally “Master” certification. Additionally, we inspect our solar panel installers’ work to ensure that the highest quality standards are upheld.
- The SunPower Industry-Leading Warranty Coverage: When making a solar purchase decision, we encourage you to compare service and power warranties. SunPower provides a 10-year service warranty on materials and workmanship. In addition, we offer an industry leading, 25-year performance warranty, which ensures that your panels will produce up to 80% of their expected minimum peak power output, or SunPower will address the shortfall.

- SunPower Solar Energy System Monitoring: Homeowners who opt for SunPower Monitoring Services can track their own energy production and overall environmental impact. SunPower provides monitoring services online or through an iPhone application. In addition, our solar energy installers can monitor the energy output of your solar energy system through our monitoring services, enabling them to receive an alert when a system isn’t meeting performance standards and address the problem quickly.
