|Includes: SunPower Corporation (SPWR)

SunPower designs, manufactures, and delivers some of the highest efficiency, highest reliability solar panels and systems available on the market today. Residential, business, government, and utility customers rely on the company's quarter century of experience and quality performance to provide maximum return on investment throughout the life of its products.

The company announced today the completion of a 1.3 megawatt high efficiency SunPower solar power system on the roof of the Exploratorium's future home in San Francisco's Embarcadero. The Exploratorium is a world-renown science museum that also creates original, interactive exhibits which are on display at more than 1,000 science centers, museums, and public spaces around the world.

The SunPower system is designed to ultimately provide 100 percent of the electricity demand at the new state-of-the-art facility, which is scheduled to open sometime in the spring of 2013. The system uses SunPower solar panels that are up to 50 percent more efficient than conventional solar panels. According to estimates provided by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the SunPower solar power system will avoid the emissions of 33,150 tons of carbon dioxide over the 30-year life of the system. Performance of the system will be updated every 15 minutes in the lobby of the facility.
