A Legacy of Innovation
Successfully delivering a solar power plant is complicated. We know, because we’ve spent a lot of time designing, developing, constructing and operating some of the largest solar power plant installations around the world when we were part of SunPower Corporation.
Today, following our spin-off from SunPower in 2020, we’re channeling all the knowledge from that past into innovative solar panels—panels that exceed the expectations of the EPCs and developers delivering today’s large-scale solar power plants. Our shared experience and understanding translates to better performing, highly reliable technology you can put your trust in.
Leading Energy Providers Choose Maxeon
Over the course of our 35+ years in solar, our panels have been installed in more than 5 GW of solar power plants across 6 continents, enabling insightful relationships with some of the world’s most sophisticated utilities, developers and EPCs.
Nearly 700 megawatts of our high efficiency bifacial Performance 5 UPP solar panels will power the Gemini solar plus storage power plant project located near Las Vegas, Nevada, United States. The project is being built and will be owned and operated by Primergy Solar and, upon completion, it will be one of the largest operational solar power system in the U.S.

Panels Uniquely Engineered for Large-scale Solar Power Plant Installations
The innovative shingled cell design of the Maxeon Performance panel delivers more energy and greater reliability over traditional front contact panels. With more than 5 GW deployed across 60+ countries, Performance panels are the leading shingle cell panel on the market today*Based on shipments as of Q1-2021 and the ideal choice for solar power plants.
Scalable Manufacturing to Meet a Growing Demand
While many manufacturers are still in the early stages of developing shingled cell technology, we’re currently delivering our fifth-generation of Maxeon Performance panels. This latest generation of shingled cell technology builds upon years of design and engineering innovation, while rapidly scaling manufacturing to meet demand from solar power plant EPCs and developers around the globe.

Panel Choice Matters
Cell and Panel Manufacturing
We know it takes a lot of time and resources to bring a solar power plant project to life.
You need a technology partner that not only understands the risk you’re taking, but how their products impact every stage of your project.
High power, high performance Maxeon Performance panels optimize project layout to provide more power in less space.
And our use of third-party PAN files ensures more accurate and predictive modelling for your project.
Project financiers mitigate risk by backing solar projects that utilize technology with a proven track record.
In addition, Maxeon Solar Technologies also has the financial backing of Total S.A., the world’s 4th largest public energy company.*Source: Forbes, The World's Largest Oil & Gas Companies 2020. Forbes Global 2000.
Engineering, Procurement and Construction
EPC firms want technology that is reliable, easy to install and keeps solar power plant construction costs down; while project owners demand technology they can trust to maximize their ROI.
Both can achieve peace of mind with Maxeon Performance panel technology.
Operations & Maintenance
What good is technology that constantly breaks down and needs attention?
Maxeon Performance panels offer proven reliability to last in the field well beyond their warranty.
Leadership in Sustainable Manufacturing
Our technology was recognized with the first annual Sustainability Award from pv magazine. We strive to continue to produce panels as clean as the energy they produce. Read more about our sustainability practices.
A Global Footprint
We’ve designed, developed, constructed, operated and supplied more than 5 GW of panel technology to some of the largest solar power plants around the world.
