Utility Scale Solar, Simplified

The SunPower® Oasis® Power Plant has dramatically simplified large-scale solar.

A typically time-consuming, complicated process has been streamlined with our modular Oasis power blocks.

SunPower Oasis Power Blocks enable fast rapid solar deployment
A Finely Tuned System

The SunPower Oasis power plant is a fully-integrated solution built with cost-optimized power blocks seamlessly integrated into a turnkey energy solution. High-density, SunPower power blocks are designed to maximize energy output and follow the contours of your land for optimal energy production.

Robotic Cleaning Increases Performance
  • 90% Less Water - Only ½ cup of water used per panel  Vs. 5 cups of water per panel using manual cleaning methods.
  • 75% Faster - Six megawatts cleaned in one eight-hours shift with a three-person team vs. 24 hours for the same size team using manual cleaning methods.
  • Cleans at Night - Avoid disruption during daytime energy-producing hours.
Robotic cleaning helps optimize the performance of solar power plants
