“I was already delighted with the appearance of my SunPower rooftop panels, but receiving my first payment from my utility company made the investment even sweeter!”
– Thomas Kinzner, Homeowner, Sterzing, Italy
In the first half of 2008, Italian homeowner Thomas Kinzner approached a SunPower Authorised Partner. He wanted to install a photovoltaic (PV) solar system on the roof of his home in Sterzing, a small town in the mountains of South Tyrol, Italy. His aim was three-fold: to obtain maximum power efficiency and high return on investment while reducing his carbon footprint. As part of SunPower’s Authorised Partner Network, the Partner could offer all of this, and more. With many years of experience in the renewable energy industry and many residential installations in their portfolio, they installed 164 SunPower panels on Mr. Kinzner’s home in June 2008. SunPower’s unique high-efficiency, better-looking technology combined with SunPower Partner's technical savvy has allowed Mr. Kinzner to maximise his solar investment without affecting the beauty of his home. In just one week after project start-up, Mr. Kinzner began to generate reliable, clean electricity and save on his utility bill. SunPower and SunPower Authorised Partner made it happen.
