Sunpower Ltd. was conceived by Peter Hoyos in 1972.
Mr Hoyos is an engineer by profession who was seeking to lower his residential electricity bill. He began experimenting by building his own solar panels and utilising an old tank which he had bought. This experimental system performed so well, Mr Hoyos was able to turn off his electrical heater for 80% of the year.
In 1977 a builder asked Mr Hoyos to build and install solar heaters for some apartments he was constructing. For four months Mr Hoyos operated from his garage and from these humble beginnings the company has grown into the business it is today. Sunpower currently employs 45 dedicated staff members and occupies 12,000 square feet of space, which accommodates both offices and production areas at Searles Factory Yard.
In 1999, Henry and Susan Jordan joined the company as partners responsible for the day-to-day running of the company and the name Sunpower Limited was changed to Sunpower (1999) Ltd., as most people know it today.
Henry Jordan is the sales director, a position admirably suited to his years of experience as a former manager of a shipping company. Under his guidance, sales have grown at an unprecedented rate.
Susan Jordan is responsible for the accounts department and the overall running of the office. Her support of her husband and her contribution to the running of the company is invaluable.
Peter Hoyos still acts as a consultant providing technical assistance. Sunpower (1999) Ltd., was honoured to receive an award for its 'contribution to the development of the solar heating sector'.
