- If you received the Notice of Proposed Class Action Settlement (“Notice”) SunPower Corporation’s (“SunPower”) records show that you may have purchased or own SunPower residential Solar Modules manufactured between approximately July 2015 and December 2016 that contain or previously contained certain factory-integrated Generation 3.0 microinverters. You may be eligible to have SunPower, at no cost to you, replace the microinverters in your Solar Modules with new microinverters if they have not already been replaced, and you may also qualify for a cash payment as a result of a class action Settlement.
- This lawsuit is brought by Plaintiffs Max Weiss, Lezley Holmes, Sebastien Tardif, and John Maczynski (collectively, “Plaintiffs”) against SunPower, alleging that SunPower manufactured, marketed, and sold for residential use, Solar Modules with factory-integrated Generation 3.0 microinverters containing a component part manufactured by a third-party, which Plaintiffs allege is defective (the “Subject Microinverters”). The Solar Modules were manufactured between approximately July 2015 and December 2016.
- SunPower denies the allegations in the lawsuit and denies any wrongdoing or liability. SunPower has agreed to settle the lawsuit to avoid burdensome and costly litigation and disruption to its business operations.
