SunPower Corp. plans to build a 9.1 MW solar power plant in Alange, Badajoz, Spain, for the Naturener Group. This will be the fifth solar power plant that SunPower has designed and constructed for Naturener Group to date. SunPower will also provide operations and maintenance services under the agreement with Naturener.
At the 38-hectare site, SunPower will install its SunPower T0 Tracker technology, which requires only half the land area to produce the same amount of energy as conventional dual-axis trackers, the company says. On the trackers, SunPower will mount the company's standard-efficiency Serengeti solar panels.
Construction on the plant will start this month and is expected to employ over 150 people locally.
