Wal-Mart Stores Inc. and SunPower Corp. have announced the completion of a 390 kW solar power system at a Sam's Club store in Chino, Calif. The store is the first of seven Wal-Mart facilities in California to receive SunPower solar power systems, totaling 4.6 MW, and is part of a major purchase of solar power from SunPower and other solar power providers for approximately 22 Wal-Mart stores, Sam's Clubs and distribution centers in Hawaii and California.

On the roof of Wal-Mart's Chino store, SunPower installed its proprietary SunPower T-10 solar roof tiles, which tilt at a 10-degree angle to increase energy capture. The company adds that Wal-Mart's SunPower solar power systems are financed through the SunPower Access program.
