Business description: SunPower, a subsidiary of Cypress Semiconductor, designs and manufactures high-performance silicon solar cells based on an inter digitated backside contact design, leaving the entire front surface uniformly dark and free of gridlines that normally block light entry., We believe clean energy and backup storage should be accessible to everybody. That’s why SunPower designs all-in-one residential and commercial solar and storage solutions backed by personal customer service and the industry’s most comprehensive warranty. And with over 35 years of dedicated solar experience, we’re the only U.S.-based solar company that’s been around longer than our 25-year warranty.
