SunPower Completes Smaller Solar Deals With Wal-Mart, Horizon Power
SunPower has deals with Wal-Mart and Horizon Power to install solar systems that are under a megawatt each.
The company recently completed installing a 554-kilowatt solar power system at the Wal-Mart store in Hanford. The system is expected to generate about 15 percent of the store’s electricity and reduce between 7,000 to 8,000 metric tons of GHG emissions per year.
In Australia, SunPower has signed an agreement to build a 505-kilowatt solar power installation for Horizon Power. The company says the solar installation will be the largest solar tracking system in Australia and is expected to be completed by September 2009.
Earth2Tech reported that the small-scale business seems to be doing well for the company, with its global residential and small-commercial rooftop dealer network growing by more than 25 percent in the third quarter over the previous quarter.
