SunPower and GE install 1.1MW solar system for HP

SAN DIEGO, Calif. /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- SunPower Corp. (NASDAQ: SPWRA) (NASDAQ:SPWRB), a Silicon Valley-based manufacturer of high-efficiency solar cells, solar panels and solar systems, and GE (NYSE:GE) recently announced the completion of a 1.1-megawatt solar-electric power system on the roof of HP's printing technology research and development facility in San Diego, Calif.

At the San Diego facility, SunPower installed a SunPower(R) T10 Solar Roof Tile commercial roof system, which is a non-penetrating product that tilts at a 10-degree angle to increase energy capture. The system will reduce more than 60 million pounds of carbon dioxide emissions over the next 30 years, which is equivalent to providing electricity to 3,800 homes or removing more than 5,250 cars from the road.
