SunPower Enters Power Purchase Agreement with Arizona Cooperative for New 20-MW PV Plant

Arizona’s Sulphur Springs Valley Electric Cooperative has inked a 20-year power purchase agreement with SunPower to build a 20-MW alternating current solar photovoltaic plant.

Expected to go online by the end of 2016, the plant will generate enough electricity to power about 4,500 homes.

At the completion of the SunPower plant, 95 percent of SSVEC's electricity will come from renewable sources – a 2025 goal set by the Arizona Corporation Commission.

SunPower plans to build a Sunpower Oasis power plant system at the site in Cochise County.  Construction is set to begin early 2016.

Once online, SunPower is expected to sell the project to 8point3 Energy Partners LP, and  SSVEC has the future option to purchase the plant.
