Jamie Brennan, director of demonstration projects for Con Edison, said: “Customer engagement is at the heart of our Connected Homes platform, which will provide customers with more energy choices and an ability to manage their consumption.

“Customers will get personalised information about their energy usage and an introduction to SunPower's innovative solar solutions.”

Before designing and installing a SunPower solar power system for a customer, SunPower will collaborate with homeowners in order to discuss the numerous financing options available.

Homeowners can opt to own the system through a cash purchase or loan, or lease it, which does not require an upfront investment.  

Howard Wenger, SunPower president, business units, added: “We are pleased to work with Con Edison, making solar more accessible to New York homeowners through this innovative partnership. SunPower offers industry-leading solar technology that generates 70 percent more energy in the same space than conventional panels over the first 25 years, as well as superior reliability and aesthetics.

“Combining SunPower's 30 years of experience delivering high-performance solar solutions with Con Edison's long history of delivering electricity to New York homeowners can help further propel the state's new energy vision.”
