Why Do More Homeowners in New York Choose SunPower® Solar Panels?

Over 30% more SunPower panels installed than any other manufacturer in NY

Most homeowners know that installing solar on their home is a great way to lower their energy cost, reduce their carbon footprint, and increase the value of their home, but not everyone knows what to look for when choosing the brand of solar panel to install. The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) keeps track of not only how much solar is being installed, but what type of panels are being installed. Their data shows that there is over 30% more SunPower solar panels installed than any other manufacturer in New York State, and this is not by chance! So what makes SunPower solar panels the most popular choice in New York?

Sunpower by Venture Solar


SunPower® has over 200 patents on the way they make their solar panels, and have claim to the highest efficiency panels in the industry. SunPower panels deliver 38% more power over their life when compared to a standard efficiency system of the same size in watts, and over 70% more power over their life when compared for a standard efficiency system of the same physical size. This is due to the high quality components and proprietary manufacturing process that allows SunPower panels to generate more power from day one, and more power over their life than a conventional panel. New York is not known as the sunniest state, so more homeowners choose SunPower because they want to make sure they have a panel that can produce the maximum amount of power possible on their roof. Needless to say, you get a lot more bang for your buck with a SunPower solar panel.


SunPower® panels rank #1 in reliability, guarantee the most power, and work better over time than any other panel available. When compared with the other top 15 manufacturers warranties, SunPower’s production guarantee is the highest declining to 87% after 25-years versus the traditional 80% guarantee by most manufacturers. Only 1 of every 20,000 SunPower panels are returned under warranty because SunPower panels are made to handle the harsh environment on your roof. SunPower ranked #1 in the Fraunhofer durability testing proving that they are the most reliable panels on the market!


SunPower offers the only true 25-year warranty on their panels, which also covers their racking and inverters. Most manufactures offer a 10-year product warranty, and 0-year labor warranty, but they advertise their 25-year power output warranty, which declines to 80% of peak power output over that period. SunPower covers the parts, labor, and power output for an unprecedented 25-years so homeowners get complete peace of mind with their SunPower system. No other manufacturer offers a complete solution with one company standing behind their three major components.


Adding solar to your home shouldn’t mean you have a science project on your roof that is an eyesore and detracts from your home’s value. SunPower’s Equinox system is the only all-in-one home solar system available, and requires 30% less visible parts than a conventional system. The new Invisimount® racking system allows the mounting system to be completely hidden under the panels, and the SunPower® micro inverters reduce the amount of equipment that needs to be installed on the side of your home.
