By now, you must know that SunPower panels are the best on the block, in every aspect. They’re quite literally the most efficient panels you can put on your rooftop. SunPower solar module has achieved an NREL-validated 24.1 percent. In a release, NREL scientist Keith Emery, manager of the PV cell and module performance laboratory, announced: “The module measured 11310.1 cm2 (aperture area) and had a power of 272.5 watts. We recorded 24.1 percent efficiency, which is a new record for silicon module efficiency.”
Facts about Solar Technology from SunPower
Highest Efficiency Solar Panels EVER.
- SunPower makes the highest efficiency solar panels you can buy for your roof.
- SunPower holds the world record for the highest efficiency silicon solar panel.

- SunPower® E-Series panels deliver 31% more power.
Why Solar Cell Efficiency Matters
More power in less space:
Residential customers already understand the value of buying higher-efficiency systems. They now get more watts installed on their rooftops, making smart use of the favorable economics for these systems. The result is a massive increase in energy produced in the same amount of space as conventional solar technologies. This is great for customers, who will need fewer panels, a plus for aesthetics. Right now SunPower is manufacturing solar panels verified at 22.8 percent efficiency.
Without question, cost plays a significant role in solar. Materials are a large fraction of the costs, including glass, silicon and frames. High-efficiency panels are constructed from these same basic materials so they hence leverage the relentless cost curve of the industry.
Using fewer materials per watt is also great for sustaining our planet. In fact it’s a double benefit, because less energy is required to construct the system, and more solar energy is generated at a faster rate.
