Toll Brothers and SunPower have entered into a multi-year agreement in which SunPower will be the exclusive provider of solar technology to Toll Brothers homes and communities across California. The agreement combines SunPower solar, storage and additional services, and contains preferred terms for solar and storage offerings in California and nationally.
“We are excited to partner with SunPower to provide leading solar technology solutions to our home buyers in Toll Brothers communities across California,” said Seth Ring, Executive Vice President of Toll Brothers. “This partnership underscores Toll Brothers’ commitment to a cleaner environment, while providing our home buyers with additional options for renewable and reliable power, including backup home energy storage.”
With this strategic affiliation nearly every home that Toll Brothers builds in California will include a SunPower Equinox home solar system, which generates more power in less space with fewer visible parts than traditional solar electric systems. In addition to providing the most efficient solar power available to home buyers, the agreement will allow Toll Brothers to expand availability of solar storage offerings with SunPower’s innovative SunVaultä storage system. This will provide home buyers with more reliable power, reduce peak-time electricity charges, and serve as a back-up home power source in case of a utility outage.
“Toll Brothers is known for quality craftsmanship and high standards, so joining together to provide their customers with the best quality and aesthetics available in solar and storage is a natural fit,” said Matt Brost, Senior Director of New Homes Sales at SunPower. “Together we can offer new home buyers the ability to generate electricity sustainably and peace of mind that they’ll be able to keep the lights on.”
The exclusive agreement also provides a framework for expansion of the terms to additional states in which Toll Brothers and SunPower operate.
Have you checked out our YouTube page?
We have a ton video interviews and additional content on our YouTube page. Recently we debuted Power Forward! -- a collaboration with BayWa r.e. to discuss higher level industry topics as well as best practices / trends for running a solar business today.
Our longer running side project is The Pitch -- in which we have awkward discussions with solar manufacturers and suppliers about their new technology and ideas so that you don't have to. We've discusses everything from residential rail-less deck attaching and home solar financing to large-scale energy storage value stacking and utility-driven new home solar + storage microgrids.
We also post our Project of the Year announcements there! Interviews with this year's winners will be up starting the week of Nov. 8. Head there and subscribe today to stay on top of all this extra stuff.
