A 1.7-megawatt solar installation from SunPower (NASDAQ:SPWR) is now fully operational at Bose Corporation’s headquarters in Framingham, Mass. SunPower designed, constructed, financed, and will operate and maintain the fixed-tilt, ground-mount system along the southern hillside of what is commonly known as “The Mountain.”
Nearly 4,000 high-quality SunPower® solar panels are expected to generate 2.4 million kilowatt hours of energy annually, bringing enough electricity onto the grid to supply a substantial portion of the Bose campus through a 20-year power purchase agreement.
“Corporate renewable energy programs are growing, especially in Massachusetts where Bose is headquartered,” said Nam Nguyen, SunPower executive vice president, commercial solar. “We’re proud to be working with Bose to further advance solar development in the Commonwealth, and to support the company’s commitment to long-term sustainability as a leading global brand.”
SunPower, the No. 1 commercial solar provider in America with the most megawatts installed according to Wood Mackenzie (formerly GTM Research), has a footprint across the U.S. including Massachusetts and New England.
