SunPower will begin construction on the project in Colorado’s San Luis Valley in 2015 and complete it in 2016, the San Jose, California-based company said today in a statement. Terms weren’t disclosed.
The project will be the third SunPower has built for Minneapolis-based Xcel in the valley, after the 19-megawatt Greater Sandhill project and the 30-megawatt San Luis Valley Solar Ranch project that were completed in 2011.
First Solar Inc. is the largest U.S. solar manufacturer.
