SunPower to break ground soon on U.S. Army Solar PV project

SunPower Corp. (Nasdaq: SPWR) said it expects to begin construction this month on a 10-MW solar photovoltaic (PV) power plant at a U.S. Army post in Alabama.

SunPower is delivering the output from the plant under a power purchase agreement with the Redstone Arsenal U.S. Army post. The project was developed by Redstone Arsenal’s Directorate of Public Works, the U.S. Army Office of Energy Initiatives and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers – Huntsville Center’s Energy Division. SunPower designed the project, and will build, operate and maintain it.

SunPower designed and is installing a SunPower Oasis Power Plant system at the site, which is a fully-integrated, modular solar power block engineered for rapid deployment while optimizing land use.

The U.S. Army has a goal to receive 25 percent of total energy used from renewable sources by 2025, and a commitment to deploy 1 GW of renewable energy on Army installations by 2025.
