Salt River Project (SRP), Arizona State University (ASU) and SunPower Corp. have entered into an agreement to build a 1 MW solar photovoltaic power plant at ASU's Polytechnic campus in Mesa, Ariz.

The facility will be the first commercial deployment of SunPower C7 Tracker technology, a solar photovoltaic tracking system that concentrates the sun's power seven times, the company says.

SunPower is engineering and constructing the plant on the southeast corner of the ASU Polytechnic campus and will operate and maintain it. Under a power purchase agreement, SRP will buy the entire output of the solar plant from SunPower, and in a separate agreement, ASU will purchase all of the energy attributable to the plant for use at its Polytechnic campus.
