SunPower Continues Development in Spanish Market

SunPower Corporation announced on Friday that its Spanish subsidiary will engineer, procure equipment for and construct three solar electric power plants totaling approximately 21 megawatts (MW) in the Castilla La Mancha region of Spain.

Corporate affiliates of The Naturener Group, a Spanish-based company, will own the three solar power plants located in Tinajeros (Albacete), Manzanares and Almuradiel (Ciudad Real), just southeast of Madrid. They are expected to be financed by a Spanish bank syndicate.

SunPower will install its SunPower Tracker solar tracking system at each of the three sites, covering a total of approximately 90 hectares (222 acres). The SunPower Tracker enables solar panels to automatically follow the sun throughout the day to maximize energy generation — delivering up to 25 percent more power output than traditional fixed systems, according to the company.

“We are pleased that the Spanish market continues its rapid adoption of solar power and that Naturener has chosen SunPower’s innovative solar tracker technology as part of our turnkey solar solution,” said Marco Antonio Northland, general manager of SunPower’s European operations.
