Sunpower Solar Panel Review
Sunpower Solar Panel Review: SunPower is known for having some of the most aesthetically pleasing solar panels on the market. The all black look is stylish but also blends nicely with most rooflines. For those who want a different look, SunPower also offers a solar panel that does not come with the “gridlines.” One SunPower Solar Panel Review noted that friends and family didn’t even notice the new solar panels on the roof. This is a great alternative for people who find conventional solar panels to be an eyesore but would still like to benefit from their energy saving qualities.
SunPower has made product selection easy by offering distinct levels of technology such as 205, 210 and 215. The low end panels are most affordable but least efficient of the three. Within each level, SunPower offers a series of solar panels, you’re sure to find the perfect solar panel for your needs.
For example, the SunPower 225 and the SunPower 230 are the highest rated residential panels from SunPower while the SunPower 210 and the SunPower 215 are the most cost effective. In her SunPower Solar Panel Review one customer pointed out that SunPower’s highest efficiency panels were the best option for her because her house had limited roof space due to the design of the home and property lines. A more efficient solar panel may cost more upfront, but if the surface area of your roof is limited like this customer or the area you live in doesn’t get much sunlight then purchasing less efficient panels could just be a waste of money.
SunPower’s innovative collection of solar power products for residential customers includes the SunPower Monitoring System – which is revolutionary to the industry. This system offers users details about the performance of their solar panel system. The Monitoring System is web-based, allowing you to monitor your system from wherever you are, even through your iPhone via a specially designed iPhone app. OR, your professionally certified dealer can monitor your system for you, ensuring optimal ongoing daily performance. After all what good are solar panels if you can’t be sure they are saving you money.
Finally, SunPower’s solar panel systems are easy to install and maintain as noted in another SunPower Solar Panel Review: “You don’t have to turn the panels to face the sun. There aren’t any switches. It just does what it does—it’s as reliable as the water. There’s no burden on me. I thought there would be more involvement.” Many solar panels will require frequent adjustments to maintain the optimal angle with the sun during the different seasons.
While many people are interested in installing solar panels to reduce their carbon footprint, another SunPower Solar Panel Review highlighted the long-term investment as a bonus, “I compared the value of my solar investment versus a hypothetical 7% per year gain in stocks and bonds. Over a 10-year period I’m expecting to come out ahead. So solar was a good way to diversify my investments.” Saving over $200 per month, solar has not only been good for the environment but good for their pocketbook, as well as substantially increasing the value of their home!
