SunPower Dealer Accelerator Program announced


SunPower announced the launch of the SunPower Dealer Accelerator Program to make investments in local solar dealers to advance their business growth.

SunPower is making investments in Freedom Solar Power and Sea Bright Solar, two SunPower Master Dealers. Freedom Solar and Sea Bright — who are exclusively selling SunPower solar systems — will sell SunVault battery storage and leverage SunPower Financial offerings for solar financing. SunPower will also provide lead generation and business strategy support to dealers.

“Our dealers are on the front lines of the clean energy transition. With SunPower’s Dealer Accelerator program we create avenues for these businesses to grow their own businesses and help customers make the move to renewable energy by doing what they do best,” said Peter Faricy, CEO at SunPower.

Texas-based Freedom Solar Power is the leading residential installer in the state as well as the Front Range of Colorado and central Florida, providing solar energy to thousands of homeowners. In 2021, Freedom Solar booked over $175 million of residential contracts, growing by 80 percent in Texas to outpace the market and regain market share leadership.

Sea Bright Solar provides solar solutions to homeowners in New Jersey, New York and Southern California, enabling them to save money on electricity and reduce dependence on fossil fuels.

The residential solar market is expected to grow by 113 percent over the next 10 years, according to Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) and Wood Mackenzie. Yet, with less than 5 percent of U.S. homes currently powered by solar.
