  • SAN JOSE, Calif., Nov. 10, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- BuildingGreen – a trusted, independent source among builders for over 30 years – has long recognized green building products that help transform the industry by conserving energy and water, reducing emissions, and improving the overall environmental impact of physical structures. Today, SunPower (NASDAQ:SPWR) announces that its solar carport solutions are being recognized as one of BuildingGreen's top 10 recommended products for 2018.

    Recognizing the Most Innovative, Green Products Transforming the Building Industry and Earning Customers More LEED Points

    "Our annual, Top 10 Green Building Products list represents the most exciting new innovations and biggest breakthroughs in health and environmental performance across all major building product sectors," said Brent Ehrlich, BuildingGreen's products and materials specialist. "We selected SunPower's carport solutions for their use of underutilized spaces, and for their multi-functional structural designs that can incorporate graywater and EV charging. SunPower's efficient solar panels are also Cradle to Cradle Certified™ Silver and can count toward LEED credits."

    Drawing on decades of experience, SunPower has designed and engineered a suite of commercial solar carport solutions that efficiently monetize available space such as ground-level parking lots and the tops of parking garages. SunPower® E-Series or X-Series direct current solar panels can be affixed to the top of the carports, generating clean electricity and providing shade to vehicles underneath. These top-performing solar panels generate 45 percent more energy in the same space over 25 years when compared to conventional panels, contributing up to 35 percent of the credits required for the U.S. Green Building Council's LEED certification. They are also the first and only solar panels to receive Cradle to Cradle Certified™ Silver designation which demonstrates a product's quality based on five categories: material health, material reutilization, renewable energy use, water stewardship and social fairness.

    "Our carports are sustainable, innovative solutions for companies looking to achieve reliable energy cost savings with solar while optimizing land use and adding an elegant, multi-functional feature to campuses that employees benefit from as well," said Norm Taffe, SunPower's executive vice president of products. "We are proud to see SunPower's solar carport offerings recognized by reputable experts knowledgeable in sustainable building and design, and look forward to delivering superior performance and value to more customers with our leading energy solutions."

  • SAN JOSE, Calif., Oct. 11, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- In under six months, SunPower (NASDAQ:SPWR) completed the installation of a Texas-sized, 8.79-megawatt solar system spanning across four parking garages at Toyota Motor North America's new 100-acre headquarters in Plano, Texas. SunPower was also responsible for the original design of the solar system. 

    Over 20,000 Solar Panels Generate Approximately One-Third of Energy Needs at New Toyota Motor North America Campus in Plano, Texas

    "Toyota's new campus serves as a model for corporate sustainability and an inspiration for others looking to reduce their own carbon emissions and environmental footprints," said Nam Nguyen, SunPower executive vice president. "With SunPower's carport solutions, our experienced design and construction teams delivered long-span, garage top solar canopies that fully incorporate the Plano site's unique structural conditions. As the trusted solar partner for 70 percent of the top 20 commercial solar users nationwide, SunPower is proud to work with a world-class company like Toyota on this groundbreaking project."

    The solar installation marks an important step toward meeting Toyota's Environmental Challenge 2050, which aims to eliminate carbon emissions in the company's operations. Toyota demonstrates an increasing trend of growing renewable energy investment among corporations, as reaffirmed by an Apex Clean Energy and GreenBiz 2017 State of Corporate Renewable Energy Procurement report. According to the report, 84 percent of large corporate respondents plan to be active in the renewable energy market within the next decade to meet sustainability goals.

    In an effort to achieve LEED® Platinum certification from the U.S. Green Building Council (USBGC), Toyota designed its campus for sustainability, focusing on energy planning for emissions reduction, sustainable landscaping and repurposed rain water for water conservation, and recycling.

    To meet its goals in energy planning, Toyota selected SunPower to install more than 20,000 of its high-efficiency E-Series solar panels that produce 30 percent more energy from the same space over the first 25 years when compared to conventional solar panels. SunPower® E-Series panels are Cradle to Cradle Certified™ Silver which demonstrates a product's quality based on rankings in five categories: material health, material reutilization, renewable energy use, water stewardship, and social fairness. By installing E-Series panels, Toyota is not only able to meet approximately 33 percent of its on-site energy needs with solar, but the company also had a significant advantage in reaching its LEED® Platinum goal, achieved for its new campus as announced just last month. Cradle to Cradle certification helps maximize the number of LEED credits that could be earned for a solar system. On typical commercial projects, SunPower panels help contribute up to 35 percent of the credits required for LEED certification.

    "At Toyota, we demonstrate our commitment to sustainability, our culture of respect, and continuous improvement in everything that we do, whether its designing a new car or our new campus," said Doug Beebe, general manager of Toyota's real estate and facilities/corporate security and fire services for North America. "Thanks in part to SunPower and their products and capabilities, Toyota's headquarters campus achieved LEED Platinum certification – something that we know our team and community are proud of."  

    At 8.79 megawatts, Toyota's system is the Lone Star State's largest corporate office on-site solar installation among non-utility companies, and Toyota's fourth solar project completed with SunPower.

  • SAN JOSE, Calif., Aug. 30, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- According to the National Auto Dealers Association (NADA), energy costs can be a car dealership's third highest operating expense. With lighted parking lots, electric tool-filled repair shops, and technology-enhanced show rooms, auto dealers on average consume 18 percent more energy than a typical office building, collectively facing nearly $2 billion in electricity costs annually – a hefty price for local, family-owned businesses that make up roughly 80 percent of the industry.

    Experienced SunPower Dealer Network Leads the Way with Cost Effective Solar Energy Solutions Uniquely Designed for Automotive Customers

    Across the country, SunPower® solar dealers – many of which are also locally-owned small and medium-sized businesses themselves – have helped auto dealerships put empty rooftops and expansive parking lots to better use with high-efficiency solar energy systems. Oftentimes, these systems serve a dual purpose: While generating enough energy to significantly reduce an auto dealership's electricity costs, they also offer protection to whatever is underneath – be it a newly constructed roof or a fleet of new cars.

    "Solar just makes good business sense in today's energy environment, and has become integral to many of our facilities' energy-efficient designs," said Linda McGinty, Vice President of Real Estate, Luther Auto Group. "Over the last five years, we've worked with Energy Concepts to install over 450 kilowatts of high-efficiency SunPower solar at 10 of our dealerships across Minnesota, and have seen significant energy savings as a result."

    Featured automotive companies with SunPower solar include:

    Luther Auto Group in Minnesota. As the largest privately owned automotive group in the Midwest, Luther now has 454 kilowatts of solar installed across 10 locations. SunPower dealer Energy Concepts sold, designed and installed the systems which combined are projected to generate more than $2.1 million in electricity cost savings over 25 years.

    Covert Auto in Texas. Serving the Central Texas community for five generations, Covert now has 125.6 kilowatts installed across the roofs of its Ford and Chevy dealerships in Hutto. Freedom Solar Power sold, designed and installed the systems which combined meet 53 percent of the company's electricity needs and are expected to generate more than $500,000 in energy savings over 25 years.

    Boulder Nissan in Colorado. More than 50 kilowatts of rooftop solar is currently installed at Boulder Nissan, well known in the community for its leadership advancing the adoption of electric vehicles. SunPower dealer Independent Power Systems sold, designed and installed the system which meets 20 percent of the company's electricity needs and is expected to generate $384,000 in energy savings over 25 years when combined with the dealership's upgrade to LED lighting throughout the facility.   

    "It's inspiring to help auto dealers see a return on their solar investment in five to seven years, with some becoming cash-flow positive in as little as one month," said Ryan Ferrero, CEO of Ignyte Lab which partnered with Independent Power Systems, a SunPower dealer. "When we can show auto dealership owners the financial benefits of using renewable energy and adopting sustainable business practices, high-quality solar energy solutions end up selling themselves. And with more than 17,000 new car dealers across the U.S., there's a huge opportunity to help more in the industry save on electricity costs with solar." 

    Like car dealers, global automakers recognize the benefits of investing in solar as well. In Plano, Texas, SunPower is working with Toyota to install an 8.79-megawatt system at the Toyota Motor North America's new headquarters. When complete, it is expected to be the Lone Star State's largest corporate office on-site solar installation among non-utility companies.

    "It's no surprise that an increasing number of auto customers find solar to be a reliable, effective way to reduce electric bills while freeing up operating capital and improving their environment with emission-free energy," said Nam Nguyen, SunPower executive vice president. "Through relentless innovation, SunPower has created smart, simple, and cost-effective solar systems that allow businesses in any industry maximize their investment, earning more savings over time."

    There are currently more than 17 megawatts of SunPower solar under construction or operating at auto companies across the U.S. To learn more about the benefits of solar from car customers with SunPower systems, visit the SunPower blog here or webpage here.
