SunPower Corporation (San Jose, CA, U.S.) on February 16th, 2017 announced that it will supply 64.4 MW of its E-Series photovoltaic (PV) panels for the construction of seven solar power plants in France by La Compagnie du Vent, a subsidiary of Engie.

A significant portion of the panels supplied under the agreement will be manufactured at SunPower's facilities in France.

To date, SunPower has supplied a total of 45 megawatts of its technology to La Compagnie du Vent for the construction of five solar PV plants currently operating in France.

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 reutilization, renewable energy use, water stewardship, and social fairness.

Ninety-nine percent of the waste generated at SunPower’s manufacturing facilities in De Vernejoul and Toulouse, France is diverted from landfills, earning the facilities landfill-free verification from NSF Sustainability, a division of the global public health organization NSF International.
