SunPower is one of the largest solar panel providers in the U.S., founded in 1985 by a former Stanford University engineering professor. It’s a great option for anyone looking to add solar panels to their home or business property. Here are a few things first-time solar buyers should know about SunPower’s installer network and Master Dealers.
How the SunPower Installer Network Works
SunPower’s solar panels are available in all 50 states. SunPower uses a tier system to rank its dealers and installers, which can help customers find the best option in their area. The best place to buy SunPower panels is from a Master Dealer, which is part of SunPower’s top, invitation-only tier of partners.
States without Master Dealers can get SunPower panels from Elite Dealers and Authorized Dealers. These partners have the company’s stamp of approval. This includes training on SunPower’s panels and installation processes and requirements for performance and customer satisfaction.
Anyone interested in investing in a solar system should take the opportunity to be an early adopter. Federal bills and tax legislation offer numerous benefits for homeowners and businesses investing in clean energy infrastructure. For example, experts estimate that the 2022 Inflation Reduction Act could result in $3.5 trillion in capital investment in solar and wind power technologies over the next decade.
