It’s a fact of life — when you have solar panels installed, they will be subjected to extreme weather events, and sometimes even wild swings in temperatures.


The temperature even fluctuates between morning and evening hours can lead to the metal components found in solar panels expanding and contracting and causing them to even break. And when these components break, that means your panels cannot generate solar power.


This is why at Sunrise Solar we are an authorized dealer of SunPower solar panels, the industry leader in manufacturing clean solar energy across the globe.


SunPower is dedicated to exceeding industry standards and manufactures solar panels that are designed to last 25 years through extreme and fluctuating temperatures. The company uses a Temperature Cycling Chamber that is designed to simulate these changes.


Each SunPower panel is subjected to rapidly changing temperatures (from -40 degree Fahrenheit to 185 degree Fahrenheit) over several hours. And the chamber cycles between these temperatures in order to test the durability of each solar panel unit before they are installed on your home or business.


Other solar panel systems across the industry cannot withstand drastic changes in temperature. SunPower’s unique Maxeon Cell Technology system uses thick plated copper contacts with built in strain relief that are robust and expandable, when compared to standard solar panels.


SunPower, quite simply, is built for life in the real world and is the most reliable solar panel on the market today. It’s why we at Sunrise Solar install SunPower panels, because we take pride in our work, planning, and management of every facet of a new solar panel project.
