SunPower (SPWRA) To Build 7 Solar Plants In Italy, 16.5 MW Total

SunPower just announced that it has signed an agreement with Sol.In.Build Srl, a subsidiary of Veronagest SpA, to build 7 solar plants in Sicily. No financial details were disclosed, but the 7 plants will provide 16.5 MW of capacity total. Individual plants will vary in size from one to 3.5 MW. All plants are expected to be up and running by September of this year.

The plants will use SunPower panels as well as SunPower T0 Tracker systems for maximum efficiency.

In a press release, SunPower Vice President Gian Maria Ferrero commented on the agreement:

“High-efficiency SunPower technology at these sites will minimize land use and maximize the amount of reliable, emission-free solar power generated per hectare, which is one of the priorities of Veronagest and the Sicily region. This is the largest solar project to be financed in Italy this year, which underscores financier confidence in SunPower’s technology and experience.”
