How Solar Works - Understanding The Differences

SunPower® Equinox™ is the only all-in-one, complete home solar system. With a conventional solar system, it’s hard to know what you’re getting. And while an installer may tout that variety is a strength, it’s more likely a warning sign. Inconsistent product strategies and standards are no guarantee that you’ll be happy with the end result.

Running solar with too many brands can be a hassle
