SunPower: Why Your Builder Chose SunPower


California residents are familiar with solar inclusion when it comes to buying new homes. It’s because in 2020, the Title 24 energy code has begun requiring all new homes in the state to include a solar system. While this ambitious energy code has yet to be adopted in other sustainability-minded states, new home communities are prioritizing solar power more than ever.

Toll Brothers is one of the latest companies to bring homebuyers the best cleaner energy solutions from SunPower. When the agreement between the two companies was announced late last year, Toll Brothers said it was eager to provide its communities with access to renewable and reliable energy options. And, while it’s a big draw for various home building companies across the country, here are a few other reasons why. Masonits chosen SunPower.

Woodside Homes, one of the top 30 homebuilders in the United States, began to offer its owners completed their energy independence with SunVault storage last summer, and they’re not alone. The new hospitality business makes sure that all the houses in their California Granite Bay community will include solar power + storage as well as a Wallbox EV charger.

In addition to making solar storage more accessible to homeowners, new residential communities are also seeing the need to accommodate the growing number of electric vehicle drivers. A study of clean technique found that almost 40% of electric vehicle owners also own a solar home system. So it makes perfect sense for a solar-powered home to include EV chargers to support this growing trend. Last year, SunPower partners with Wallbox To better meet the needs of sustainability-conscious consumers, install EV chargers in select locations with a solar home system.

SunPower has worked closely with homebuilders for years providing its expertise, resources and premium solutions to simplify the transition to clean energy. This is why companies like Knowledge base home have chosen to work with us for over a decade. We look forward to sharing our solutions with even more homebuilders so that new home buyers have access to the most efficient solar panels on the market.3 In fact, home building companies can surprise us at International Builders’ Fair in Orlando, Florida, starting February 8, to see our solar charging, storage and EV solutions up close.
