A New Flexible and Open Solution Introducing Actionable Home Energy Insights and Battery Storage to Help Homeowners Optimize Their Clean Energy Investment
SINGAPORE, May 5, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Maxeon Solar Technologies, Ltd. (NASDAQ:MAXN), a global leader in solar innovation and channels, today unveiled the SunPower One integrated home energy solution, which will be based on a flexible ecosystem of products and services, including Maxeon’s market-leading solar panels, as well as battery storage and actionable household energy insights. Built upon a 35+ year history of solar energy industry leadership, Maxeon’s SunPower One solution enables consumers to take control of their domestic energy consumption.
"Maxeon’s purpose is "Powering Positive Change", and we are continuing to achieve that by combining a home energy management solution with our industry leading solar panels. By simplifying the adoption of clean energy, we can help our customers accelerate the energy transition," said Jeff Waters, CEO of Maxeon Solar Technologies. "We expect the SunPower One solution will reimagine and revolutionize the consumer experience Beyond the Panel, keeping homeowners informed with actionable energy insights within their household, helping make their homes more efficient and more sustainable."
Designed to be intuitive and engaging, the Maxeon’s SunPower One solution goes beyond simple monitoring to proactively advise homeowners on ways to optimize their energy usage. Over time, it learns about a homeowner’s pattern of electricity consumption and suggests strategies to drive further energy bill savings. For example, SunPower One can identify "always on" devices in the home that are worth switching off to reduce energy consumption during periods of high electricity prices. It can also expose malfunctioning appliances that may need a repair or replacement based on their abnormal electricity signals. And, most importantly, with the appropriate products, it can enable smart use cases that increase self-consumption, such as charging an electric vehicle with excess solar production and running dishwashers or heating and cooling systems at optimal times.
At launch, Maxeon’s SunPower One will be exclusively packaged with Maxeon’s new SunPower Reserve all-in-one storage offering. Over this year, the Maxeon’s SunPower One ecosystem will grow and incorporate additional products in categories like electric vehicle charging, as well as software integrations and value-added services designed to expand the customer experience.
Maxeon’s SunPower One also furthers the company’s commitment to its installers’ end-to-end business success by surfacing new opportunities uncovered by their end-customers’ household insights, such as offering products and services to help drive further energy savings. In addition, SunPower One provides an installer-specific digital environment to facilitate the effective sales and installation of the solution. With one simple account, installers will have access to intuitive next-generation quoting and design tools, agile accessible marketing and training, and automated digital processes to simplify both their own and the end-customer’s experience. Maxeon’s SunPower One is expected to enhance the installer’s role as a trusted advisor, fostering a long-term relationship between the parties as the homeowner’s needs evolve.
Promoting the differentiation that SunPower One brings to the market, Ralf Elias, Chief Product Officer at Maxeon Solar Technologies, said, "We have the freedom to think outside the box and leverage next-generation technologies to leapfrog the traditional offerings on the market today. Our customers are our north star, and we will continue to prioritize solving their pain points." Looking toward the future, he added, "SunPower One’s open and flexible ecosystem will grow over time. We are eager to welcome new partnerships with category leaders across the industry that will help empower our end-customers to drive more energy savings."
The new Maxeon’s SunPower One home energy solution will be available to installers and end users in Australia in the third quarter of 2022, and will be rolled out to other markets and customers globally, except for the United States and Canada, during the remainder of 2022 and beyond. SunPower One will be presented to the public during Intersolar Europe, on May 11-13, at Maxeon’s booth A3.274.
