RICHMOND, Calif., Oct. 20, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- SunPower Corp. (NASDAQ: SPWR), a leading solar, storage and energy services provider in North America, is proud to share that its SunVault™ battery storage system was named as a winner in Good Housekeeping's 2022 Home Renovation Awards in the Biggest Energy Savers category. A full list of winners can be found online at https://www.goodhousekeeping.com/home/renovation/a40785189/home-renovation-awards-2022/.
Blackouts due to extreme weather events are on the rise across the country. According to analysis by the Energy Information Administration (EIA), the length of time an average American goes without electricity doubled between 2013 and 2020. SunPower's SunVault battery storage system stores extra energy generated by the home's solar panels for future use. The combination of the battery's intelligent software with the mySunPower® app allows homeowners to monitor and control the use of solar energy, automatically switching between power sources to maximize the use of stored solar energy for backup or bill savings.
During outages, a SunVault can provide seamless backup power by tapping into the reserve energy; some configurations can provide enough power to keep an entire typical home running for up to three days*. The system also features high battery capacity and stability, an industry-leading 10-year warranty and a clean, minimal design.
"This award reflects our commitment to deliver peace of mind for homeowners as they seek additional security against blackouts and to live a more sustainable lifestyle," said Nate Coleman, chief products officer at SunPower. "We're proud our SunVault battery storage exceeds industry expectations thanks to its unmatched ability to distribute power efficiently during peak-rate times or outages."
