We have been hard at work making our home “smart”.

That means we want our home working for us. We want it to be as cost effective as possible and use as little traditional energy as it can. Solar energy is a big part of this. If you live in CA, NY, HI, AZ, or CO you need to know about SunPower services and installation.

One of the main reasons we are planning on getting a solar power system for our home is that it may deliver significant savings on our utility bills today and act as a hedge on rising utility rates for the future. We plan to be in our home for quite a few years to come so I'm thinking long term.

There are a lot of bonuses to having your home powered by a solar power system.

By purchasing a solar power system, you may be eligible for a 30% federal Investment Tax Credit, as well as state and local solar incentives. In most states, homeowners with solar power systems also may be eligible to take advantage of net energy metering programs that allow them to receive a financial credit from their utility company for the excess solar power they export to the grid. Generating your own emission-free solar power reduces your reliance on fossil fuels and your family’s overall carbon footprint and studies have shown that a solar power system may increase the value of your home.

 

If you are an electrical vehicle owner too a solar power system on your roof, can offset the increased electricity costs with emission-free fuel from the sun. Solar technology is proven and reliable. Systems generally are warranted for about 25 years, and there’s usually little to no maintenance required. You don’t have to turn it on in the morning, the sun does that for you. SunPower communities offers a place for you to learn more and ask questions!

Solar systems can be purchased outright or through a loan, and lease programs also are available.

Increasingly, Americans are going solar. The Solar Energy Industries Association estimates that a solar power system is installed in the US every 3.2 seconds. Solar is one of the fastest growing industries in America. There are almost 150,000 U.S. solar jobs today.

SunPower panels are different than the conventional ones.

They are the most-efficient solar panels on the market, which means your SunPower system will require fewer panels on your roof than a system using conventional solar panels. This is helpful if you have limited usable space on your roof. It also means that, when compared with systems using conventional panels, SunPower systems generate more power – and more savings – over the life of the system. Learn more about Saving with Solar Panels.

Since SunPower’s Maxeon ® solar cells are fundamentally different from cells used in conventional solar panels, the result in superior performance, reliability, quality, and aesthetics.

SunPower was founded in California’s Silicon Valley nearly 30 years ago.

They are here to stay and keep making solar power better! The company has manufactured more than one billion cells and has installed more than 4.5 gigawatts of solar around the world. That's enough to power Paris, France for an entire year! 

SunPower has received numerous accolades from third-party laboratories around the world for their unprecedented reliability and long-term performance of its technology.

SunPower offers an industry-leading, 25-year power and product warranty.

This means that, because SunPower panels are the most-efficient, most reliable panels on the market, your panels are guaranteed to generate more power over their life than conventional panels. 

SunPower has an awesome sweepstakes right now.

  1. Alternative energy is the future. In a lot of places, if you produce enough power with your solar panels, you can sell the excess back to the power company.

  2. I’ve looked into solar power before, but it wasn’t feasible at the time. I think it’s great that more people are using solar energy.

  3. This is such a good read. I’ve bee more informed about solar power and its benefits and I’m pretty convinced about it. Imma check for stores / establishments that does that here in my country.

  4. I would love to have solar panels installed in our house. I hear they can be quite expensive though but I guess the benefits would be great, especially saving money on bills.

  5. What a great sweepstakes they are offering. When we purchase our next house I would love for it to have solar power.

  6. Solar power is so cool. When I was driving through Austria and Germany, I saw SO MANY solar powered homes, more than I’ve ever seen in the US. It’s really catching on over here in Europe!

  7. It’s so great that more and more people are using solar energy. Unfortunately this is still not available at an affordable price in my country. However my dream is to live in California or Nevada in the future where there is enough sun to collect enough energy from it topper up these solar panels.
    ps. love your cover photo of Carmel by the Sea beach. It is the most amazing place where i ever lived.

  8. I remember doing a project on solar power in grade 7 and back then it was like a really futuristic kind of thing which makes me laugh. Now you can see panels on pretty much every Street.

  9. Some of out friends have built houses based on solar energy and other green alternatives. I think it’s great how solar power becomes more and more used and I believe we’re definitely gonna see it more in the future everywhere.

  10. I love the idea behind SunPower, unfortunately I don’t live in any of the states mentioned. What a great sweeps though! I’d love the opportunity to win a 3kW solar power system!

  11. I love that solar power helps the environment…and makes use of energy that would have otherwise been wasted. I live in NY so this is info I will pass on to my Mom. She’d be interested in this as a homeowner.
