SunPower to Supply 31 Percent of Solar Projects Awarded 

SunPower announced that, in the first round of France's tender process for large-scale solar power, the company will supply 31 percent of the solar panels required for the awarded solar projects, more than any other solar panel brand. In total, SunPower will provide 130 megawatts of its high efficiency SunPower® E-Series solar panels for installation at 25 ground-mount and carport solar projects.

"SunPower solar panels deliver competitive cost of energy, highest reliability and proven long-term performance," said SunPower Executive Vice President Eduardo Medina. "We are proud to be the leading provider of solar panels for the solar projects announced in this first tender round, and to play a key role in promoting the use of clean, renewable solar power in France."

A significant portion of the panels SunPower supplies will be manufactured at the company's facilities in Toulouse, France.

SunPower's direct current E-Series solar panels, as well as its X-Series solar panels, are Cradle to Cradle Certified™ Silver. SunPower is the only solar panel manufacturer in the world to achieve this designation, which demonstrates a product's quality based on rankings in five categories: material health, material reutilization, renewable energy use, water stewardship, and social fairness. 

Ninety-nine percent of the waste generated at SunPower's manufacturing facilities in Toulouse and De Vernejoul, France is diverted to landfills, earning the facilities landfill-free verification from NSF Sustainability, a division of the global public health organization NSF International. More information on the company's commitment to sustainability can be found here on SunPower's website.
