SunPower Performance 7 solar panels feature the latest generation of Maxeon’s patented TOPCon cell technology in a shingled-cell design. This innovative architecture offers significant advantages in power, efficiency, reliability, and aesthetics. Performance 7 solar panels have also been engineered for more effective shade management, mitigation of hotspots and cooler cell temperatures than standard panels.

“Maxeon has built a strong patent portfolio over nearly four decades of innovation and this is delivering exceptional value to solar customers with our new SunPower Performance 7 products,” said Bill Mulligan, CEO of Maxeon. “We are confident that the new Performance Line provides the right combination of price and performance, helping our customers meet their financial and energy goals, with the peace-of-mind offered by our comprehensive, industry-leading warranty.”

Manufactured with high-quality materials in a robust glass-glass construction, Performance 7 solar panels are built to withstand challenging, real-world conditions like hail, wind, snow, and extreme temperature swings. Improvements to temperature coefficients, bifacial factor and annual degradation also help to ensure reliable, long-term energy yield for customers. As a result, Performance 7 solar panels are offered with an improved, best-in-class 30-year Power, Product and Service warranty – more comprehensive than standard solar panel warranties.

“Maxeon’s exceptional transparency and relationship with their supply chain made this process run smoothly and proved their commitment to not only the Cradle to Cradle Certification®, but their commitment to maintaining these relationships with their recycling partners, customers, and installers in order to achieve their long-term sustainability goals,” says Michelle Molloy, Managing Director of MBDC. “We are proud to have worked with Maxeon through this process and look forward to continuing this relationship to foster change throughout the solar technology industry.”

To earn the coveted Cradle to Cradle Certified Bronze distinction, Maxeon’s entire Performance 7 production process and value chain was assessed and inspected by MBDC, a C2C Certified® Assessment Body. MBDC utilized the multi-attribute Cradle to Cradle Certified Product Standard Version 3.1. by the Institute which includes Material Health, Material Reutilization, Renewable Energy and Carbon Management, Water Stewardship and Social Fairness.

“Maxeon has proven once again that there’s a better way to enable solar customers to achieve their renewable energy goals, with products that excel across a wide range of sustainability metrics,” said Lindsey Wiedmann, Maxeon’s Chief Legal & Sustainability Officer. “We are very proud that our new Performance Line panels are now Cradle to Cradle certified, empowering our customers to achieve LEED certification – as C2C is a positive factor for LEED certification – and reach their other key sustainability goals as they further reduce their carbon footprint.”

The new Performance 7 panels are immediately available for purchase to residential and commercial customers in EMEA and APAC through authorized installer networks and distributors.
