How a SunPower dealer can prevent common solar panel issues

Solar systems offer abundant benefits to both the owner and the environment. However, anything but premier panels is more of a headache than an asset. Guaranteed quality is why it’s crucial to work with a SunPower dealer. Luckily, at DMV Equity, Inc., we’re the premier SunPower dealer for solar systems in New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut. Fully licensed, we pride ourselves on integrity, and we only use the best products and equipment.

Here’s how SunPower panels prevent common issues:


An issue authorized SunPower dealers prevent is diminished efficiency. Solar panel efficiency refers to how well a panel captures and converts sunshine into electricity.

Efficiency is critical to solar energy usage, and inefficient panels are a major issue when installing solar systems. In identical conditions, a high-efficiency solar panel produces more electricity than a lower-efficiency panel that’s the same size.

SunPower panels are the most efficient available in the United States. Most panels score between 14% and 18% in the efficiency spectrum; SunPower panels score between 19.6% and 22.8%. Efficiency should be a priority, and SunPower panels eclipse their inefficient competition.

If efficiency is a priority, SunPower should be your only option. At DMV Equity, we’re the premier SunPower dealer, and we guarantee to optimize your solar system.


It’s critical to ensure solar systems can withstand the conditions you’re installing them in. Otherwise, this could result in inefficiency, ineffectuality, and even total replacement.

When working with an authorized SunPower dealer, you get the best and most durable panels on the market and avoid these costly, inconvenient issues. Like all electronics, solar panels operate at their best in moderate conditions (25°C/77°F).

For every exceeding degree panels experience, electricity production drops. However, SunPower panels offer the best temperature durability, and their production drops significantly less than the competition.

If you live in a place with changing temperatures, SunPower panels can withstand these changing conditions without sacrificing critical production. Plus, partial shade, falling debris, and even things like bird feces can severely impair performance.

One poorly performing solar cell can significantly impact panel performance. However, SunPower utilizes cutting-edge technology like DC optimizers and microinverters that significantly reduce the effects shade and obstructions have on panels.

If optimal performance in changing conditions is a concern, SunPower products are unmatched. At DMV Equity, we equip you with durable SunPower solar systems.


Another benefit of working with an authorized SunPower dealer is the manufacturer firmly stands behind its product. This confidence is evidenced by their warranty.

Solar panels, like everything else, degrade over time. Inevitably, production drops. Most solar panel manufacturers offer 10-year warranties. However, SunPower offers a 25-year warranty against defects or environmental issues.

More importantly, most manufacturers offer a performance warranty that states their panels should still be producing at somewhere between 80% and 83% of their original capacity after 25 years. SunPower boasts a warranty that states it should be operating at 94% capacity.

The SunPower warranty means you will need to replace panels far less frequently and that you’re guaranteed unrivaled production for years to come. Even better, unlike competitors, SunPower offers full replacement warranties.

Essentially, should a panel fail, you’ll get more than a refund or replacement. A technician will come to replace and install it free of charge.
