on Friday,September 24,2010 03:09
SunPower, a manufacturer and provider of solar technology, recently announced that it has been selected to design, build, operate and maintain the Dover SUN Park in Delaware for the White Oak Solar Energy company. The park, which is expected to be operational next summer, will deliver emission-free solar power to the city of Dover.
The company will install SunPower Tracker systems with E19 solar panels at the 103-acre site. The Tracker follows the sun's movement during the day, increasing sunlight capture by up to 25 percent over conventional fixed-tilt systems.
"SunPower sun-tracking technology is fast to install and reliably delivers clean power during peak demand periods, making solar a competitively priced choice for power plant applications," said Steve Vavrik, managing director at SunPower.
White Oak is selling the energy and environmental attributes from the Dover SUN Park through long-term agreements with the City of Dover, Delmarva Power and Light, Delaware Municipal Electric Corporation and the Delaware Sustainable Energy Utility.
"Forward-thinking organizations such as White Oak Solar Energy and their local partners are maximizing their long-term production of clean, renewable solar power with SunPower's high-efficiency, high-performance power plants," Vavrik added.
