New Opportunities Begin with Solid Partnerships
Whether you aim to own and operate centralized utility-scale solar power plants, procure solar energy contracts, or craft programs to offer solar directly to your customers, SunPower delivers the diversified experience required to customize an energy solution that meets your goals.
A Growing Portfolio of Innovative Projects
Community Solar Solutions
Copper Crossing Solar Ranch, 20 MW
This community solar initiative enables thousands of local homes, businesses and schools to offset their energy usage by "adopting" blocks of solar.
Municipal Utility Solutions
Modesto Irrigation District, 25 MW
Modesto Irrigation District partnered with SunPower to source clean, reliable electricity directly within their service territory.
Investor Owned Utility Solutions
Solar Star Projects, 579 MW
Kern & Los Angeles Counties, CA
The co-located Solar Star Projects will be one of the world’s largest PV installations. When complete in 2015, they will deliver enough electricity to power approximately 255,000 homes.
Exelon City Solar, 8 MW
An abandoned property in Chicago’s 34th Ward turned out to be more than ideal for Exelon Corporation to expand its renewable energy portfolio.
Investor-Owned Utility Solutions
California Valley Solar Ranch, 250 MW
San Luis Obispo County, CA
This project is actively generating reliable solar power for Pacific Gas & Electric customers and injecting an estimated $315 million of economic development into the local economy.
Fort Churchill Solar Project, 19.9 MW
Lyon County, NV
NV Energy worked closely with SunPower and a prominent data center customer participating in the “NV Green Energy Choice” program to bring this unique project to fruition.
