SunPower, a U.S.-headquartered developer of high efficiency solar panels, has confirmed today that it will supply 291 MW of modules to PV projects being developed under the second round of France’s CRE tender process.
The deal follows an earlier supply deal agreed with SunPower – which is majority-owned by French power giant Total – and takes the amount of high-efficiency modules supplied to rounds one and two of France’s tenders to 505 MW, which is more than any other brand, SunPower says.
Specifically, SunPower will supply its E-Series solar panels to second-round projects. These modules boast a 30% increased energy yield over 25 year, the company claims, and are also Cradle to Cradle certified Silver, meaning that the panels have a verifiable green footprint throughout their production.
“SunPower solar panels deliver cost-competitive and proven long-term reliability, so we are proud to play a significant role in serving France’s goals for clean, renewable solar power,” said SunPower executive VP Peter Aschenbrenner.
Solar projects expected to be developed under the CRE second round tender in France include large-scale ground-mounted arrays, carport projects, rooftop installations and a smattering of storage-backed self-consumption projects in some of France’s overseas territories and non-interconnected zones.
