SunPower supplies 4MW solar panels for system in Jordan

AMMAN, August 7, 2018

US-based SunPower, a leading solar solutions company, said it has supplied four megawatts of high efficiency SunPower E-Series solar panels for a ground-mounted solar power system in Amman, Jordan.

The system is generating power for Arab Jordan Investment Bank's (AJIB) headquarters, and branches in the Amman area, said a statement from the company.

Designed and constructed by Wathba Energy, it was commissioned in July and is expected to generate seven gigawatt hours of electricity in the first year of operation, it said.

SunPower E-Series panels deliver an average 20.4 per cent efficiency to maximise energy production in space constrained areas. Compared to conventional solar panels, E-Series panels produce up to 36 per cent more power per panel, and 60 per cent more energy per square foot over 25 years, it added.

Dr Feras Batarseh, general manager of Wathba Energy, said: “There is tremendous growth potential in Jordan's solar market, and we congratulate AJIB for its leadership in the use of this affordable, renewable power source.”

“SunPower's high performance solar panels will optimise the value of this project for AJIB, by maximising energy production and helping AJIB achieve its financial and operational goals,” he added.

Peter Aschenbrenner, executive vice president, SunPower, said: “Customers worldwide rely on our solar panels for proven performance and reliability.”

“Backed by a strong SunPower product and power warranty, the panels installed on the ground-mounted system can generate long-term value and cost-competitive solar power for 25 years or more,” he added. – TradeArabia News Service
