2018-04-04T00:14:02+00:00

At Cola Solar we are proud to stock the most powerful solar panels on the planet – SunPower Panels. And the industry leader recently celebrated it’s 30th birthday, with so much to look back on, and so much to look forward to.

SunPower began three decades ago with a mission to develop the industry’s most efficient solar cells, a mission which they have fulfilled hands down. Since then, SunPower systems around the world have generated more than 25 million megawatt-hours of solar electricity.

Other groundbreaking technological achievements and innovations since 1985 include:

    • Securing more than 450 patents, with several receiving the U.S Patent and Trademark Office’s Patents for Humanity award, which recognizes the use of patented technology for social good.
    • Collaborating with the world’s most well-respected brands such as Apple, which is investing in 130 megawatts of SunPower systems at eight locations in the U.S. and China.
    • Constructing the world’s largest solar photovoltaic power plant, the 579-megawatt Solar Star Projects in Southern California, with expected completion this year.

The 30th birthday coincides coincides with our luxury Mineral Springs hotel giveaway running throughout May, which is free with any SunPower system. Click here for more details or call our office on 1300 374 357.
