Canadian Solar Inc., today announced its wholly owned subsidiary Recurrent Energy LLC has signed two 15-year power purchase agreements with Silicon Valley Clean Energy and Monterey Bay Community Power for a 150 megawatt solar power system with 180 megawatt-hours of battery storage.

Jamaica’s Prime Minister Andrew Holness today revealed his ambitions for the country to reach 50% renewable energy by 2030, up from the official policy of 30%. The aspiration was announced during the commissioning of his government office’s state-of-the-art solar PV array, a partnership with Solar Head of State, a nonprofit seeking to help world leaders become green leaders by installing solar panels on government buildings.

Following up on its commitment last spring to invest in American manufacturing, SunPower announced that it has completed its acquisition of certain assets of SolarWorld Americas, including its Hillsboro, Oregon facilities and its predominantly manufacturing workforce of more than 200 employees.

SunPower has already begun to inject fresh capital into the factory as it executes plans to implement its leading-edge high efficiency P-Series solar panel manufacturing technology.


"This acquisition is an important step in helping to reshape solar manufacturing in America," said Tom Werner, SunPower CEO and chairman of the board. "With a dedicated and experienced Hillsboro workforce and our advanced P-Series solar panel manufacturing technology, invented and perfected in Silicon Valley, we'll be able to sell high-performance American-assembled panels to serve our strong U.S. market demand."


SunPower has already begun implementing its plans to move relevant equipment to Hillsboro and rapidly convert existing module capacity to manufacture 19 percent efficient P-Series technology. Product shipments are expected to begin by the first quarter of next year. During this transition, Hillsboro employees will continue to produce SolarWorld Americas product over the next several months before refocusing on manufacturing SunPower P-Series products.


SunPower, a leader in the residential and commercial markets, will sell 19 percent efficient P-Series panels as part of a comprehensive high-efficiency product portfolio that includes X- and E-Series, and, beginning in 2019, will include its newly developed next generation technology.
The purchase price for the SolarWorld Americas assets was not disclosed.
