SunPower Corp. announced that it has signed an agreement with Sunshire S.r.l., a subsidiary of Api Nova Energia S.r.l., to design and build a 2.2MW solar electric power plant in Tolentino, Italy.

According to the press release, this is the first solar power plant agreement to be announced on behalf of SunPower's Italian subsidiary, SunPower Italia S.r.l. The project, which will be financed by regional banks via a leasing agreement, is the first phase of a planned 7.1MW development that is expected to be completed this year. At the site, SunPower will use its own panels and the proprietary SunPower Tracker technology, which follows the sun during the day and delivers up to 25 percent more energy than fixed-tilt systems.

"We are pleased to partner with Api Nova Energia to deliver clean, reliable solar power to the rapidly expanding Italian market," said Luca Bandini, general manager of SunPower Italia. "Sunshire will maximize the solar power plant's energy delivery, while optimizing land use and reducing related costs."

SunPower has installed more than 400MW of large-scale solar power systems globally, including more than 185MW of power plants in Europe.
