SunPower, a majority-owned subsidiary of Total SA, and Tenergie, an independent renewable power producer, has announced that SunPower is supplying 29.9 megawatts (MW) of its high efficiency SunPower® E-Series solar panels for several rooftop and ground-mount solar projects that Tenergie is developing in France.

“SunPower offers powerful solar panels, with the highest reliability on the market today,” says Pascal Penicaud, CEO of Tenergie. “We’re pleased to develop projects in France that will generate renewable energy sustainably and over the long term.”

The SunPower panels are being installed on 157 rooftop projects totalling 26.8 megawatts and two ground-mount projects totalling 3.1 megawatts. Tenergie expects to commission all of the projects before the end of next year.

“SunPower is proud to partner with Tenergie, an innovative independent power producer that shares our commitment to quality and long-term value,” says SunPower Executive Vice President Peter Aschenbrenner. “Compared to conventional panels, SunPower E-Series solar panels produce 30% more energy in the same space.”

In recent months, SunPower has been awarded contracts to supply more than 200 megawatts of SunPower solar panels for projects in France. A significant portion of the panels SunPower supplies under these contracts will be manufactured at the company’s French manufacturing facilities.

SunPower’s direct current E-Series solar panels, as well as its X-Series solar panels, are Cradle to Cradle Certified™ Silver. SunPower is the only solar panel manufacturer in the world to achieve this designation, which demonstrates a product’s quality based on rankings in five categories: material health, material reutilisation, renewable energy use, water stewardship, and social fairness.
