SAN JOSE, Calif., March 1, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- SunPower Corp. (NASDAQ:SPWR), a leading solar technology and energy services provider, and Landsea Homes Corporation (Nasdaq: LSEA), a publicly traded residential homebuilder, today announced a multi-year exclusive agreement in which SunPower will be the only provider of solar technology to Landsea Homes across the nation. With this new relationship, all homes built by Landsea Homes in California will include a SunPower Equinox® home solar system designed to offset the home's energy consumption. Additionally, homebuyers in Arizona, Florida and Texas will have the option to add this technology to their new homes.
Over the next ten years, distributed generation including rooftop solar must grow four times faster than in the previous decade to reach the nation's climate and energy goals, according to The U.S. Department of Energy's Solar Futures Study. To meet this demand, Landsea Homes, working with SunPower, will provide homebuyers the ability to generate their own clean energy with home solar systems, while saving money on electricity and reducing carbon emissions. Homeowners can also add on SunPower's battery storage to provide additional electricity savings as well as resilience during power outages.
"Both builders and homebuyers are demanding homes that cost less to operate and create less carbon emissions," said Matt Brost, Senior Director of New Homes sales for SunPower. "Designing homes with solar and storage from the onset allows people who might not have had the opportunity to support clean energy to not only take part in it but also receive direct financial benefits from it. Our innovative partnership with Landsea Homes highlights how homebuilders can be a powerful tool to enact change."
SunPower Equinox provides solar-equipped Landsea Homes buyers with peace of mind and generates more power in less space than traditional solar electric systems.
SunVault batteries are made with lithium iron phosphate chemistry designed to be safer and more resistant to heat and oxygen exposure than typical lithium-ion batteries. Homebuyers can elect to either purchase the systems or take advantage of SunPower's affordable financing options.
"This is the latest example of how Landsea Homes continues to lead our industry with innovative solutions that directly benefit our homebuyers," said Pete Beucke, Vice President of Innovation and Sustainability, Landsea Homes. "The opportunity to create a more sustainable lifestyle and help transition to clean energy is the goal of our High Performance Homes, and this agreement with SunPower allows us to achieve that."
