SunPower To Supply 505 Megawatts In First & Second Round Of French Tenders For Solar Projects

October 18th, 2017 by  

One of the world’s leading solar manufacturers, SunPower, has revealed this week that it will provide 505 megawatts worth of products in the first and second round of French energy regulator CRE’s tenders for solar projects, more than any other solar panel manufacturer.

SunPower announced on Wednesday that it will supply 291 megawatts (MW) worth of solar panels to projects awarded in the recently-announced second round of French energy regulator CRE fourth tender (CRE-4), which will include ground mount, carport, and rooftop projects in continental France, as well as storage and self-consumption in the country’s ZNI (non-interconnected zones).

“With these awards, the total capacity of SunPower solar panels supplied to ground, carport and rooftop, and ZNI projects awarded in this year’s first and second round tender process is 505 megawatts, more than any other solar panel brand,” said SunPower Executive Vice President Peter Aschenbrenner. “SunPower solar panels deliver cost-competitive power and proven long-term reliability, and we are proud to play a significant role in serving France’s goals for clean, renewable solar power.”

This second round of CRE-4 joins the 214 MW that SunPower will provide to projects awarded in the first round of CRE-4.
