SunPower to add solar PV tracking to rooftop project

Tucson Electric Power (TEP) has modified an existing agreement with SunPower Corp. (NASDAQ: SPWR) to incorporate 6 MW of its new C7 solar photovoltaic (PV) Tracker technology into a planned facility that will also include 2 MW of SunPower's T5 Solar Roof Tile technology. The new agreement modifies a previous agreement under which SunPower was contracted to deliver 11 MW of rooftop solar technology to TEP.

The C7 Tracker combines single-axis tracking technology with rows of parabolic mirrors, reflecting light onto SunPower Maxeon solar cells.

The C7 Tracker installation for TEP will begin construction in January 2013, and is expected to be operational by December 2013.
