SunPower Corporation, a solar products and solutions company, designs, manufactures, and delivers high-performance solar systems worldwide. Products and Services Solar Power Components The company sells its solar power components, including panels, balance of system components, and inverters to dealers, systems integrators, distributors, and directly to residential, commercial, and utility customers worldwide. Panels Solar panels are solar cells electrically connected together and encapsulated in a weatherproof panel. Solar cells are semiconductor devices that convert sunlight into direct electricity. In 2013, the company commercially launched its X-Series solar panels, made with its Maxeon Gen 3 solar cells. The company’s suite of SunPower solar panels provides customers various features to fit their needs, including the SunPower Signature Black design, which allows the panels to blend into the rooftop. The company offers panels that can be used both with inverters that require transformers, as well as with the highest performing transformer-less inverters to maximize output. Balance of System Components Balance of system components are components of a solar power system other than the solar panels, and include mounting structures, charge controllers, grid interconnection equipment, and other devices, depending on the specific requirements of a particular system and project. Inverters Every solar power system needs an inverter to transform the direct current electricity collected from the solar panels into utility-grade alternating current (ac) power that is ready for use. The company sells inverters manufactured by third parties, some of which are SunPower-branded. In 2014, the company acquired SolarBridge Technologies, Inc. (SolarBridge Technologies), an integrated microinverter technologies for the solar industry. The company is utilizing this technology, which converts dc generated by a single solar photovoltaic panel into ac directly on the panel, to develop next generation microinverters for use with its solar panels. Solar Power Systems The company offers various types of rooftop- and ground-mounted solar systems that integrate its solar power products and solutions. Residential Systems In 2014 the company developed residential solutions that deliver value to homeowners and its dealer partners. The company delivers ac panels with factory-integrated microinverters. The company introduced and started installing its first residential mounting system, SunPower InvisiMount, in 2014. InvisiMount is designed specifically for use with the company’s panels and reduces installation time through pre-assembled parts and integrated grounding. InvisiMount is suited for residential sloped roof applications and provides design flexibility and enhanced aesthetics by delivering a unique, floating appearance. The company is supporting its hardware development with investments in its proprietary set of monitoring applications (the SunPower Monitoring System) and its customer portal, which enable customers to gain visibility into their solar system production and household energy consumption. This software is available for use on the Web or through the SunPower mobile application on smartphones and tablets. Commercial Roof and Ground Mounted Systems The company offers various commercial solutions designed to address a range of site requirements for commercial rooftop, parking lot and open space applications. Its commercial rooftop offering includes an all-in-one, non-penetrating system that combines solar panel, frame, and mounting system into one pre-engineered unit design for flat roof application. The company also offers a portfolio of solutions utilizing framed panels and various internally or externally developed mounting methods for flat roof and high tilt roof applications. The company offers parking lot structures designed specifically for SunPower panels, balance of system components, and inverters. These systems are typically custom design-build projects that utilize standard templates and design best practices to create a solution tailored to site conditions. Utility
