SunPower solar PV power plant in Italy

SunPower Corp is building a 1.3 MW solar photovoltaic (PV) power plant in the Lazio region of Italy for Solar Green Energy-SGE, a joint venture between EDF-EN Italia, a subsidiary of EDF Energies Nouvelles, and Emmecidue, an Italian project developer.

SunPower will install its 96-cell, E 18 / 305 solar PV panels with an efficiency of 18% or higher, on SunPower T0 Tracker systems at the Ferentino site in the Frosinone province.

The solar PV power plant is expected to be operational by the end of the year.

"SunPower's solar power plant experience in Italy and worldwide, as well as the company's high efficiency technology, gives us confidence that this system will be well built in a timely manner, and will maximise the clean, renewable solar power that is delivered to the community, including to the nearby Nestle ice-cream factory," says Bruno D'Onghia, President of EDF EN Italia and Solar Green Energy-SGE.
