What Does Cradle to Cradle Certified Mean for SunPower®?

Quality Home Services is Central California’s only SunPower® Master Dealer and is the only brand used in solar panel installation jobs. Earlier this year, SunPower®®’s line of “E-series and X-series solar panels” were given the honor of “Cradle to Cradle Certified Silver” (C2C).

Here are some of the criteria used in C2C certification:

  • Material health
  • Material reutilization
  • Water stewardship
  • Renewable energy and carbon management
  • Social fairness

These five areas are reviewed to raise the bar and expect high standards from manufacturing companies. The reviewers are drawn from an independent body of assessors who have received specialized training in C2C standards. This helps them determine which companies’ products have met the criteria necessary for certification.

What does that mean for SunPower®®? SunPower® has long been a proponent of environmentally conscious, eco-friendly, and energy-saving practices. Through every phase of production, from design to delivery into the hands purchasers and customers.

Why Is C2C Certification Important for Customers?

When you see that a product is Cradle to Cradle Certified, you will know that the products you have purchased have been built to the highest standards in mind and with little disturbance to the environment. To continue holding its certification, SunPower®® must show a conscious effort to improve the efficiency of their products. As of now, the company boasts over 75% of its solar products now hold C2C certification and must continuously review.
