The SunPower Advantage

SunPower Advantage

SunPower® Complete Confidence

A better warranty starts with a better product.

25 years

    •      • Panels

    •     • Microinverters

    •     • Racking

10 years

    •     • Monitoring hardware

      *Smartphone and laptop not included.

      Every part of your SunPower Equinox™ system is meticulously designed to work

      perfectly together, and rigorously tested for long-term reliability. That’s

      why the SunPower Complete Confidence Warranty is the only warranty to cover

      your whole system (not just the panels).

      Complete System

      SunPower stands behind your entire system—including power production.

      That way you never have to wonder which company you can depend on.

      One company

        •      • The only company that stands behind your entire system.

      Easy process

        •      • No need for receipts, proof of purchase or written claims.

      Most comprehensive coverage

        •      • 25 years—system on your roof.

        •      • 10 years—monitoring technology.

      Product and Power

        •      • Full coverage for quality of product and solar power produced.

      Complete Service

      If you experience issues with your system within 25 years of purchase

      (10 years for monitoring), SunPower will repair or replace the defective part for free.

      Easy to reach

        •      • SunPower by Sun Solar is your local SunPower Master Dealer.

          Conventional System

          Each part is made and warranted by a different manufacturer.



          Pitfalls of conventional solar warranties

            •      • You pay to ship new panels

            •      • You pay to package and ship defective panels

            •      • You must present original physical proof of purchase

            •      • You must make claims in writing

            •      • You have a short time frame to make a claim

            •      • You pay the manufacturer a testing fee if they don’t find a defect
