Solar for coastal Properties
Solar panels have to brave unique conditions when they are installed in coastal areas. As well as the usual wind and sun issues, corrosive salt can really challenge lesser-quality panels.
Sharpe Energy Hub recommends SunPower’s latest Performance & Maxeon range as a great option in coastal areas. An elegant and understated appearance hides technology that gives trusted durability in extreme conditions.
SunPower uses an innovative “shingled” cell design which adds strength and enhanced performance. Aerospace-grade conductive adhesives reinforce these cell connections while a special coating protects against early degradation, which makes it best for coastal suburbs such as Semaphore, Glenelg, Hallett Cove, Port Noarlunga and Aldinga Beach. An added bonus is a process called “redundant cell connections”, which eliminates the risk of lowered performance by creating flexible paths for electricity flow within each panel.
All these features help make SunPower Performance and Maxeon panels among the world’s toughest. They have emerged as a top performer in reliability torture tests for thermal cycling, damp heat, wind-force load and the potential for degradation.
As well as being designed for durability, SunPower Performance and Maxeon panels produce significant energy in conditions varying from partial shade to extreme high temperatures. All this is backed up by a complete 25-year warranty.
SunPower is a worldwide industry leader that has been involved in some fascinating projects. These range from solar-powered race cars to the world record setting Solar Impulse 2, a long-range experimental solar plane, and PlanetSolar, the largest solar-powered boat ever made. The technology employed in projects such as these is continuously trickling down to the everyday customer.
SunPower’s sleek black panels are stylish yet rugged, producing a significant amount of energy in all coastal weather conditions.
