SunPower and The New Home Company Create Sustainable, Energy Independent Community with Solar, Energy Storage and Electric Vehicle Charging in Every Home

SunPower Corp. (NASDAQ:SPWR), a leading solar technology and energy services provider, and The New Home Company (NEW HOME), a top 50 homebuilder focused on creating a new generation of innovative homes, today announced that NEW HOME is making solar systems, battery storage and at-home electric vehicle (EV) chargers standard features in its newest community, Eureka Grove.

All 72 homes in the Granite Bay, California community will include a SunPower Equinox® rooftop solar system, 13 kWh SunVault™ energy storage system, and Wallbox (NYSE:WBX) Pulsar Plus EV charger, creating a comprehensive energy management solution for the modern homebuyer. With solar and storage, homeowners can generate electricity from their roofs, deploy stored energy during utility peak times when rates are the highest, and power essential loads during an outage. Homeowners can also leverage solar systems to power their Wallbox EV chargers, making charging more convenient and sustainable.

"The New Home Company is creating communities fit for the future, providing residents energy savings and peace of mind," said Matt Brost, Senior Director of New Homes sales for SunPower. "The obvious combination of solar, storage and EV charging is the future of new home communities nationwide, providing homeowners with convenience and the ability to make a positive impact on the planet."

SunPower Equinox systems generate more power in less space with fewer visible parts than conventional solar systems. SunVault batteries are made with lithium iron phosphate chemistry, which is designed to be safer and more resilient to heat and oxygen exposure than typical lithium-ion batteries. SunPower is a preferred installation provider for Wallbox and will manage the home EV charger installation in the Eureka Grove community. Wallbox's Pulsar Plus chargers come with a standard J1772 EV plug, an app allowing scheduled charging, and power-sharing for two or more chargers with adjustable current output, making them a fit for all EV models.

After moving in, Eureka Grove residents can power their home with solar, have a backup with battery storage, and charge their vehicle without adding pressure on the grid. Homes with these features are available for purchase today and come equipped with additional tech-forward and environment-friendly features including energy-efficient appliances and vinyl dual-pane windows for improved insulation.

"Technology enhances homes and contributes to a modern lifestyle. Innovations like built-in solar and storage can have a lasting impact on families when it comes to reliability and affordability," said Kevin Carson, NEW HOME president, Northern California. "Our first solar, storage and EV-ready neighborhood is a milestone for the company and we look forward to replicating the teamwork between energy services and architecture across future communities with SunPower to design today's homes for tomorrow's needs."
