SunPower Corp. Supplies 41 Megawatts of High Efficiency Solar Panels for Four La Compagnie Du Vent Solar Power Plants

SunPower Corp. announced that it is supplying 41 megawatts of its high efficiency solar panels to La Compagnie du Vent for the construction of four solar power plants in France under the country's national tender program administered by the French Energy Regulatory Commission. The first of the projects, the 12-megawatt Langele solar power plant, was dedicated earlier this month in France's Aquitaine region. La Compagnie du Vent estimates that the Langele solar power plant will generate 17,500,000 kilowatt-hours of energy each year, which may serve the electricity demand of approximately 9,700 people in the region. According to Reseau de Transport d'Electricite 2011 estimates, the plant will offset approximately 14,000 tons of carbon dioxide per year. In addition to Langele, the other three La Compagnie du Vent solar projects for which SunPower is supplying panels include the 12-megawatt Roc du Doun project in the Limousin region, the 12-megawatt La Foret Marcoles in the Auvergne region, and the 5-megawatt Le Mouruen signs in the Provence-Alpes-Cote d'Azur region. All four solar plants are expected to be constructed and operational by end of 2015. In 2012, SunPower worked with La Compagnie du Vent to deliver the 4-megawatt Porette de Nérone solar plant in Aghione, Corsica.

the University of California and SunPower Corp. Announces to Build Solar Power Plant in California

The University of California and SunPower Corp. announced a plan to build a 16MW, ground-mounted solar power plant in California, which is expected to generate 14% of UC Davis's electricity needs. The university anticipates that, when the plant is completed in 2015, more than one-third of total electricity demand on campus will be served from carbon neutral energy sources. On completion, the project will be the large solar power installation in the University of California system, and the large solar power plant to offset the electricity demand of a US university or college campus. The plant, to be built on a 70-acre site south of Interstate 80, will be owned and operated by SunPower, which will also design and construct the project. The plant will improve the University's ability to accurately budget for electricity costs, and UC Davis anticipates that it will provide an effective long-term hedge against future utility rate increases.

The University of California, Davis and Sunpower Corp Plans to Build A 16-Megawatt, Ground-Mounted Solar Power Plant

The University of California, Davis and SunPower Corp. plan to build a 16-megawatt, ground-mounted solar power plant that is expected to generate 14% of UC Davis' electricity needs. The university anticipates that, when the plant is completed in 2015, more than one-third of total electricity demand on campus will be served from carbon neutral energy sources. On completion, the project will be the large solar power installation in the University of California system, and the large solar power plant to offset the electricity demand of a U.S. university or college campus. The plant, to be built on a 70-acre site south of Interstate 80, will be owned and operated by SunPower, which will also design and construct the project. The plant will improve the University's ability to accurately budget for electricity costs, and UC Davis anticipates that it will provide an effective long-term hedge against future utility rate increases. SunPower will install its SunPower(R) Oasis(R) Power Plant technology at the site, which uses single-axis tracking technology to position high efficiency solar panels to track the sun throughout the day, increasing energy capture by up to 25 % over fixed-tilt solar technology. The technology includes robotic panel cleaning capability that reduces water usage by approximately 90 % over traditional cleaning methods. The project is designed to generate 33 million kilowatt-hours of electricity per year, compared to total campus electricity use of 228 million kilowatt-hours in 2013-14. It is expected to reduce the campus' carbon footprint by an estimated 9%.
