SunPower to Supply Equipment Solutions to Global Solar Power Plant Market

SAN JOSE, Calif., April 24, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — SunPower (NASDAQ: SPWR) announced today that it now offers the fully-integrated SunPower® Oasis® Power Plant platform directly to solar power plantA photovoltaic plant is a power station that generates electrical power by using photovoltaic cells; usually such a power plant feeds electricity into the public grid. developers and engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) providers through a newly formed SunPower® Solutions business unit. SunPower Solutions enables developers and EPCs to benefit from SunPower’s extensive experience over the past decade developing, financingOften banks lack knowledge about which projects are sensible and sustainable quality criteria., constructing, operating and maintaining solar power plantsGrid-connected photovoltaic systems are connected to the public grid through an inverter and feed-in electricity into the public grid..

“The SunPower Oasis platform delivers competitive costCost: The consumption of resources such as labour time, capital, materials, fuels, etc. as the consequence of an action. In economics, all resources are valued at their opportunity cost, which is the value of the most valuable alternative use of the resources. Costs are defi ned in a variety of ... of energy with the proven reliability and quality of SunPower technology in a fully pre-engineered complete solution,” said Tom Werner, president and CEO of SunPower. “Through SunPower Solutions, we enable solar powerPhotovoltaics (PV) is the field of technology and research related to the application of solar cells for energy by converting sunlight directly into electricity. Solar power is sometimes used as a synonym to refer to electricity generated from solar radiation. plant customers around the world to achieve the same standards of excellence with respect to installation speed, quality and performance that we have demonstrated in over 1,000 large-scale solar power plant projectsProject is an intervention designed to achieve specific objectives within specified resources and implementation schedules, often within the framework of a broader program.

“The market for solar power plantsA photovoltaic plant is a power station that generates electrical power by using photovoltaic cells; usually such a power plant feeds electricity into the public grid. is rapidly globalizing, with solar power now the most competitive form of new electricity generationElectricity generation includes all technologies that turn some form of energy into useful electric energy. Electricity is a form of energy that has magnetic, radiant and chemical effects. Electric current is created by a flow of electrons. in many countries,” continued Werner. “In most emerging markets, there is not yet a significant base of installed solar capacity, and limited experience siting, designing, constructing and operating large-scale solar facilities. SunPower’s fully-integrated Oasis platform allows local developers and EPC companies new to solar power to minimize risk to projectProject is an intervention designed to achieve specific objectives within specified resources and implementation schedules, often within the framework of a broader program.

SunPower Solutions has operations in more than 10 countries and has signed almost 200 megawatts of contracts this year to supply SunPower power plant technology to projects in North America, Europe and Oceania.

In September 2016, SunPower launched its third-generation Oasis Power Plant, a complete power plant solution that installs quickly and optimizes site utilization to maximize value for customers. Product features include 50 percent fewer parts than conventional solar plant systems and an integrated solar trackerActive racks for modules follow the direction of the azimuth and/or the inclination. The rack is fixed on a concrete foundation. design that streamlines construction and reduces operations and maintenance costsCost: The consumption of resources such as labour time, capital, materials, fuels, etc. as the consequence of an action.

“Every part of the Oasis platform is engineered to maximize energy yield, delivering a more efficient, reliable solution for long-term energy production,” continued Werner. “The SunPower Oasis platform uses drones and our proprietary software to quickly survey sites and select the optimal layout to achieve project financial and energy goals. Oasis trackers are designed to flexibly accommodate steeper slopes and minimize on-site grading. EPC companies appreciate that Oasis is fast and easy to install, and end customers benefit from up to 67 percent more lifetime energy density from a given site.”
