SunPower 230Watts Grid Connect Solar Module




SunPower designs, manufactures and delivers high-performance solar electric technology worldwide. SunPower high-efficiency solar cells generate up to 50 percent more power than conventional solar cells. High-performance solar panels, roof tiles and trackers deliver significantly more energy than competing systems.


The SunPower 230 Solar Panel provides today?s highest efficiency and performance. Utilizing 72 next generation SunPower all back-contact solar cells and an optimized panel design, the SunPower 230 delivers an unprecedented total panel conversion efficiency of 18.5%. The 230 panel?s reduced voltage-temperature coefficient and exceptional low-light performance attributes provide outstanding energy delivery per peak power watt.




Highest Efficiency
Panel efficiency of 18.5% is higher than any commercially available panel of similar size.


More Power
SunPower 230 delivers up to 50% more power per unit area than conventional solar panels and 100% more than thin film solar panels.


Reduced Installation Cost
More power per panel means fewer panels per install. This saves both time and money.


Reliable and Robust Design
Proven materials, tempered front glass, and a sturdy anodized frame allow panel to operate reliably in multiple mounting configurations.
