Maxeon was spun off from SunPower in August 2020, when the two companies became independent. Solar modules of the Performance line are based on Maxeon's shingled cell technology, which was initially developed by SunPower. 83 issued patents protect the technology. According to Maxeon, the 425W modules utilise bifacial mono-PERC solar cells on big format eight-inch G12 wafers and have a 20.6 percent efficiency.
