SunPower Corp.

has completed a 13.78 MW solar photovoltaic power system at Naval Air Weapons Station China Lake (NAWS China Lake) in Calif. Using SunPower's modules, the plant is generating the equivalent of more than 30% of NAWS China Lake's annual energy load, the company says.

Using a long-term energy procurement authority (US Code Section 2922A), the power plant is the first federal agency project to be financed through a 20-year term solar power purchase agreement (PPA), SunPower adds. The 20-year PPA allows the Navy to secure electricity at up to 30% below the rate available through shorter duration 10-year PPAs.

An affiliate of MetLife Inc. purchased the system, which SunPower designed and built. The company installed its SunPower Oasis Power Plant product, a fully integrated, modular solar power block integrating the SunPower T0 Tracker with solar panels, pre-manufactured system cabling, the Oasis inverter and the Oasis operating system.

Is it just me or does it look as if like some of these
comments appear like coming from brain dead visitors?
:-P And, if you are posting on additional places, I'd like to follow anything fresh you have to post. Would you list of every one of your community sites like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
