Maxeon Solar Technologies has announced an agreement with CED Greentech to significantly expand its availability to residential installers in the United States. Maxeon’s Interdigitated Back Contact (IBC) panels produce an average of 85% more energy than a conventional system of similar size over their useful life.

Mark Babcock, chief revenue officer at Maxeon Solar Technologies, said, “CED is an ideal partner for Maxeon. Demand in the United States for our unique offering is skyrocketing, and thanks to CED, we will be able to launch at scale in no time. Maxeon will support the effort not only with our product, but also with our tiered channel program which we credit for facilitating an exceptional customer experience to more than one million Maxeon-powered residential customers worldwide.
Maxeon will offer its flagship IBC panels and its industry-leading 40-year warranty. The products will be available for purchase later this year with deliveries starting in January 2023.
Earlier this year, Maxeon announced an expanded sales initiative in the US commercial and industrial (C&I) solar market, where Maxeon will sell Maxeon-branded IBC solar panels as well as a performance assurance product from Omnidian. The performance assurance partnership with Omnidian will strengthen the bankability of the system and improve the return on investment for our customers.
Maxeon also signed a new supply agreement with SunPower governing the supply of Maxeon’s Interdigitated Back Contact (IBC) solar panels to SunPower for use in SunPower’s residential channels in the United States and Canada.
Have you checked out our YouTube page?
We have a ton of video interviews and additional content on our YouTube page. Recently we debuted Power forward! — a collaboration with BayWa re to discuss high-level industry topics as well as best practices/trends for running a solar business today.
Our longer side project is Field — in which we have awkward talks with solar manufacturers and suppliers about their new technologies and ideas so you don’t have to. We’ve discussed everything from trackless residential bridge fixing and home solar financing to large-scale energy storage value stacking and new utility-driven solar and home storage microgrids.
We also publish our project announcements for the year! Interviews with this year’s winners will begin the week of November 8. Go ahead and subscribe today to stay up to date with all that extra stuff.
