SunPower Corp. has entered into an agreement with Giulio Barbieri SPA to design and manufacture a new solar carport for the Italian residential market.
Under the terms of the agreement, Giulio Barbieri will deliver carports according to customer specifications. SunPower's local partners will then install the complete system, including the aluminum structure, solar panels and inverters.
The SunPower Carport is available in four versions and can be installed in a number of configurations to accommodate either two or three cars. The flexible design incorporates 18, 24 or 32 of SunPower's 96-cell solar panels, delivering approximately 5.9 kW to 10.5 kW depending on the system size. The system is tilted for maximum energy output, and the attractive modular look blends in with any architectural context, SunPower says.
