SunPower® Solar Power Plant Development Approach
For more than a decade, SunPower has worked with landowners, government agencies, permitting authorities and the local community to build clean, renewable solar energy power plants. SunPower’s internationally scalable solar energy project development platform includes design, transmission, permitting, engineering, legal, and project financing capabilities. When this platform is paired with our reliable, high-performance technology, we deliver a bankable turnkey solar energy solution for our customers. Our experienced solar power plant development team and our ownership of the solar PV value chain enables us to manage nearly all aspects of the development cycle, from solar panel manufacturing to market and site identification, from purchasing and project financing, to permitting, community outreach, and final electrical interconnection to the grid.
We typically own the solar projects while we develop them. Once we secure financing and construction begins, however, we determine the most feasible ownership option for our partner or customer and engage the appropriate investors to complete the transaction.
Building Community SupportWith solar photovoltaic projects designed to last 25 years or more, building community support is crucial to the successful installation of a solar energy plant. We strive to involve the community every step of the way, from working with legislators to educating community members about the benefits of renewable solar energy, from streamlining the permitting process to sourcing local labor.
