Microsoft Shines with 480 kW Solar Power System

SunPower is due to install its solar panels in a large commercial rooftop solar system at Microsoft’s Mountain View, California, campus. The 480 kilowatt (kW) solar power system will power a portion of the buildings and equipment on the Microsoft campus.

The solar panels were integrated into the rooftop solar system designed and supplied by PowerLight of Berkeley, California, and will offer up to 50 percent more power per square foot than conventional solar technology. “We congratulate Microsoft on the decision to SunPower its campus — reducing its exposure to higher electric rates while lowering its carbon footprint,” said Tom Werner, CEO of SunPower Corp. “We’re pleased to have the largest solar system in Silicon Valley using Silicon Valley’s own high-tech, high-efficiency SunPower solar panels.” SunPower’s high-efficiency solar panels are available for homes and businesses across California. SunPower offers an all-black solar panel that improves the appearance of solar systems while maximizing the solar power generated per square foot of roof area.
