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.
