California, United States [RenewableEnergyWorld.com] SunPower Corporation, a manufacturer of solar cells, solar panels and solar systems, announced it has signed a customer contract with German solar power plant integrator City Solar Kraftwerke AG. Over the next three years, SunPower will provide City Solar with solar panels and commercial rooftop and ground mounted systems.
City Solar will receive at least 100 megawatts of SunPower’s solar panels, the SunPower T10 Solar Roof Tile for commercial rooftop installations, and the T0 Tracker and T20 Tracker for utility-scale, ground mounted systems.
“Solar continues to grow in Germany and throughout Europe, and demand for SunPower products remains strong,” said Howard Wenger, SunPower’s president, global business units. “We welcome City Solar as a new partner to deliver SunPower’s high-efficiency solar panels and tracking systems to commercial and power plant customers.”
The SunPower T10 Solar Roof Tiles are non-roof penetrating and tilt at a 10-degree angle to increase energy capture. The SunPower Tracker is a single axis design that enables solar panels to automatically track the sun’s movement throughout the day, increasing sunlight capture by up to 25 percent over fixed mounted systems.
