Typically home solar power systems have required assembling the components ad hoc, fro panels to racking to fasteners to inverters.
EmPower Solar says its new system, the SunPower Equinox, is the first residential solar solution in the nation in which every major component has been designed and engineered by one company to work seamlessly together, more energy and, long-term performance and curb appeal. With a typical SunPower Equinox installation, only the solar panels and a Smart Energy management device are visible, reflecting SunPower's minimalist architectural approach at the system level.
"The SunPower Equinox system is a game changer for home solar," said Howard Wenger, SunPower president, business units. "This powerfully elegant solution produces 70 percent more energy with 70 percent fewer visible parts compared to conventional solar, and we're backing it by the best combined power and product warranty in the industry.
"SunPower continues to raise the innovation bar by delivering solutions that make the complex simple, reducing costs, speeding installation, and increasing satisfaction for our customers - while improving quality and aesthetics."
Wenger said key SunPower Equinox elements and homeowner benefits include:
- High-efficiency SunPower solar panels

"With SunPower Equinox, we now have more than just solar panels to offer, as each key component of the system comes from SunPower," said David G. Schieren, CEO, SunPower by EmPower Solar. "This innovative solution is covered by the best warranty available from a single company, giving our clients peace of mind that their complete system will perform as expected over its long lifetime."
SunPower by EmPower Solar recently launched a consumer awareness campaign called "Demand Better Solar™" reminding homeowners that solar technology differs widely from brand to brand. Not all solar systems deliver the most energy, look as elegant on a roof, or are guaranteed to last as long as promised. However, with the SunPower Equinox system, U.S. homeowners can have the best solar technology available today.
