SunPower To Sell Projects In Power Plant Unit

SunPower Corporation (NasdaqGS:SPWR) is looking to sell projects in its power plant business and potential buyers include Berkshire Hathaway Energy Company, Thomas Werner, Chief Executive Officer of SunPower Corporation told Reuters. The company first plans to offer the project to 8point3 Energy Partners LP (NasdaqGS:CAFD). “If the deal does not go through, SunPower would directly approach other American utilities and American banks that fit the right profile of buyers,” Werner said. "Berkshire Hathaway (Energy) is one of the potential buyers of the power plant projects if 8Point3 chooses not to buy," Werner said on October 28, 2015. SunPower Corporation said it would make its final decision by the first half of 2016. Berkshire Hathaway Energy, a unit of Warren Buffett-led holding company Berkshire Hathaway Inc., was not immediately available for comment.
