One of the biggest benefits to choosing Renova Energy for your solar and battery storage needs are the partner companies that we work with on your behalf. That means SunPower for your solar panels, and Tesla Powerwall for your battery storage.
SunPower is an American company that is more than 30 years old. Based in California, SunPower has more than 750 solar patents and is a publicly traded company that has been led by CEO Tom Werner since 2003. SunPower boasts a global portfolio of leading residential, commercial and utility solar energy markets.
In addition to leading the industry with efficiency, SunPower also provides the best warranty available. It covers 100% of repair or replacement costs, while conventional solar warranties don’t. Labor, shipping, parts – you’re covered for 25 years. Plus we guarantee that your panels won’t lose more than 8% of their original power output in 25 years. Compare that to 19% for conventional solar. Additionally, SunPower panels have an expected life of 40 years. That means if you purchase your system and it pays for itself with savings in 5-8 years, you will enjoy free power for more than three decades!
