Sunpower brings to Australian homes the Maxeon 6 AC module 425w with integrated Enphase microinverter – the most advanced solar technology. This new edition of the first-ever factory-integrated AC module designed to enhance safety and increase reliable energy production for Australian homeowners.
The Sunpower Maxeon 6 solar panel is undoubtedly the most durable solar panel made even more amazing by industry leading warranties.
The great news is that the solar panel modules are now immediately available in Australia through Maxeon’s authorised partners, such as Natural Solar, a premium Sunpower and Maxeon Partner.
SunPower, Europe’s number one home solar panel power meets Enphase, the world’s leading Micro Inverter manufacturer. Consumers get the world’s premier solar solutions.
Maxeon 6 solar panels are designed to stand out and recognised to be better across more than five cell generations, 3.5 billion cells and 30 million panels, even in the toughest of conditions. Where traditional solar cells lose power over time because of corrosion and breakage, the design of Maxeon 6 solar cells eradicates 86% of the reasons that conventional cells fail. Your residential solar panels always deliver energy and savings year after year.
Each Maxeon 6 AC module works autonomously, powering your whole system to become more reliable, and your rooftop more productive. With traditional technology, your solar system is as powerful only as well as your weakest panel. Each product is proven to remain optimally efficient under partially shaded conditions. This can hugely diminish output for non-optimised modules due to shade or other real-world challenges, even small debris like leaves.

They say less is more. This is especially true with powerful solar panels. When your panels produce more power you only require fewer on your roof. You get efficient, compact, easy to scale design, should you decide to expand your system to electrify your car or other home appliances. And with the micro inverters smartly concealed below each panel, no more cumbersome string inverters on your walls – just a beauty.
It is next level convenience with the Enphase Enlighten™ app. You are in control anytime – all the time as you sync your innovative solar — on your roof, in the palm of your hand.

The Enphase EnvoyTM communication gateway links your solar array to the internet, enabling live access to data on system performance and critical issues. The Envoy communication gateway delivers out automatic alerts about technical issues to your installer and supports remote troubleshooting.
A microinverter is a small electronic device that sits beneath each solar panel. Its main task is to convert direct current (DC) electricity from your solar panels into alternating current (AC) electricity that you can use in your home or export to the grid. Each micro inverter acts as its own mini power station on your roof, andmaximises solar production from an individual module level due to one MPPT (multi power point tracker) per panel.
Enphase is the world’s foremost Micro Inverter “smart inverter” manufacturer. Listed on the NASDAQ Stock Exchange in America with a market capitalisation of 20.92Billion USD, Enphase is genuinely a secure option for continuing technical support and product reliability.
Having produced its 7th Generation of smart Micro Inverter technology in this latest product, Enphase has done all of the heavy-lifting for you with a deep-rooted history with billions of investment in research and development. Enphase is the top-notch choice. Combined with the world record holder in efficiency Sunpower Maxeon 5 415w solar panel, this is easily the best available product in the world – the Rolls Royce of solar.
The Enphase system is the safest on the market.
Electrical current is the movement of charged particles and more precisely, for this discussion, the flow of electrons on a wire. In the late 19th century, Nikola Tesla defeated Thomas Edison in the battle for the soul of the electric current. Edison held many patents for direct current (DC) and fought hard to make it the standard, but ultimately the much more flexible alternating current (AC), favoured by Tesla, triumphed. Not only is AC current significantly easier to transport long distances, but it is also the safest of the two options by far.
Direct current is constant and moves in one direction. Alternating current moves back and forth, positive to negative, and back again. If you look at a graph of each below, you’llobserve that DC needs a steady voltage to move the electrons along. AC on the other hand, is moved by a voltage that oscillates between two points. Notably, with AC, the voltage crosses the zero point once each cycle. This is crucial because, at that moment when the voltage is at zero, there is no current.
With a DC system, the current is always on. This is especially problematic when there is a fault or breaks in a DC electrical system, since the current is always flowing, it can jump the break and start a fire.
But don’t take our word for it. Watch the demonstration of an arc fault in the video here.
Enphase Micro inverters convert the direct current from your solar modules to grid-compliant AC before that energy ever leaves the micro inverter. There is no high voltage DC running across your roof or through your attic with an Enphase system—only safe, grid compliant AC, the same that powers your other appliances. With an “old school” solar system using a string inverter, all the solar modules are connected in series to reach the very high voltage required to power the inverter. Even when DC optimizers are used, what leaves the optimizer is DC, not safe, reliable AC. (This is also one of the reasons string inverters don’t last as long as Enphase Micro inverters. High voltage DC is hard on a device!)
Invest with confidence, knowing that the quality is proven for both SunPower Maxeon panels and Enphase micro inverters. Each is uniquely designed for climate extremes, tested beyond industry standards, and proven by actual field results. Each is also backed by a category-leading warranty’s from the manufacturer.
Enhanced Performance, Maximised Savings for Solar Homeowners
If you are looking for the best solar technology in the market right now, the Maxeon 6 is for you. This AC Module brings together two of the greatest technologies globally, into one sleek and compact solar panel. Perfect for customers wanting advanced solar solutions new demand dynamics.
The world record module efficiency means it takes up far less roof space than conventional panels. Your roof space and access to the free energy from the Sun is an incredibly valuable asset to your home energy ecosystem. If you are thinking of purchasing an Electric Vehicle in the next few years, this is the perfect product for you, as by using the most efficient panel on the market you will have additional roof space available when it comes time to increasing your solar system’s capacity. Importantly, the AC Enphase scalable design makes adding panels in the future a much easier process.
Natural Solar has been installing the Maxeon range since its entry into the Australian market. Where this product stands out is its superior reliability and most importantly after sales support. To date we have not had a single Maxeon panel fail or require replacement due to ageing or other issues. And thanks to our 40-year panel warranty, when you buy a Maxeon 6 panel for your home, you’re buying it for the life of your home. With Maxeonsolar technologies you, “Do it once and do it right”.

These costs are based on the SA Power network in Adelaide but prices may vary depending on your circumstances. This comparison assumes a general energy usage of 4000kWh/year for a residential customer on Energy Locals Time of Use Tariff – (TOU – Peak, Off-Peak & Solar Sponge).
The reference price is set by the Australian Energy Regulator (AER) for a financial year in relation to electricity supply to residential customers in the distribution region and is based on an assumed annual usage amount. Any difference between the reference price and the unconditional price of a plan is expressed as a percentage more or less than the reference price. The terms of any conditional discounts are shown, along with any further difference between the reference price and the discount applied if a condition is met, expressed as a percentage more or less than the reference price.
