SunPower announced that it will supply 291MW of its solar panels to projects awarded under the second round of France’s CRE tender process.
These projects include ground mount, carport and roof top projects in continental France, along with storage and self-consumption in the country’s ZNI (non-interconnected zones).
Peter Aschenbrenner, SunPower executive vice president, said: “With these awards, the total capacity of SunPower solar panels supplied to ground, carport and rooftop, and ZNI projects awarded in this year’s first and second round tender process is 505MW, more than any other solar panel brand.
“SunPower solar panels deliver cost-competitive power and proven long-term reliability, and we are proud to play a significant role in serving France’s goals for clean, renewable solar power.”
When compared to conventional panels, SunPower’s E-Series solar panels produce 30% more energy in the same space over the first 25 years.
