Over Three Decades of Solar Leadership
Our record of solar innovation began nearly four decades ago, when our co-founder, Dr. Richard Swanson, was pondering ways to deal with the oil crisis. At that time, solar cells were being used on satellites, a concept he found intriguing. His engineering challenge was to figure out how to make the cells more cost-effective. So he began a quest that, almost 40 years later, has helped position SunPower as a leader in residential, commercial and utility-scale solar power production.
Integrated design, unmatched performance.
The SunPower Equinox platform is a testament to our design philosophy — when technology is designed to work together, it works better. No other system is designed and engineered by one company. From solar cell to software, SunPower Equinox systems generate more power, are more reliable and look better than conventional home solar power systems.
By engineering built-in microinverters behind each panel, the SunPower Equinox system maximizes energy production and converts sunlight into usable power immediately at the panel level. With SunPower’s microinverter technology, a bulky inverter on your wall is a thing of the past.

SunPower’s elegant panels achieve a world-record setting 22% efficiency rate, the highest available. They produce 70% more energy in the same space over 25 years than a conventional system2. With the highest efficiency on the market3, the panels in a SunPower Equinox system occupy less space on your roof for the same size system, so they complement your roof without overwhelming it.
