and Power Plant Systems The company offers the modular solar power block (SunPower Oasis or Oasis), which combines SunPower solar panels and tracker technology into a scalable 1.5 megawatts solar power block, which streamlines the construction process while optimizing the use of available land by conforming to the contours of the production site. The power block kits are shipped pre-assembled to the job site for rapid field installation. The Oasis operating system is designed to support grid interconnection requirements for large-scale solar power plants, such as voltage ride-through and power factor control. Oasis is being deployed at the 748 megawatts Solar Star Projects in California. The company owns Greenbotics, Inc., the developer of a robotic solar power plant cleaning system. It is deploying this technology on many of the utility-scale solar power systems for which it provides operations and maintenance services. The company’s single axis tracking systems automatically pivot solar panels to track the sun's movement throughout the day. Its solar concentrator (SunPower C7 Tracker or C7) combines a horizontal single-axis tracker with rows of parabolic mirrors, reflecting light onto linear arrays of its high efficiency solar cells. The SunPower cell is suited for this application due to its high efficiency under low levels of concentration. Similar to Oasis, SunPower C7 Tracker's components come factory preassembled, enabling rapid installation using standard tools and requiring no specialized field expertise. Utility-Scale Solar Power System Construction and Development The company enters into turnkey engineering, procurement and construction agreements with customers under which it designs, engineers, constructs, commissions, and delivers functioning rooftop- and ground-mounted solar power systems. This includes the development, execution, and sale of solar power plants, which generally include the sale or lease of related real estate. Under such development projects, the plants and project development rights, initially owned by the company, are later sold to third parties. In the United States, commercial and electric utility customers typically choose to purchase solar electricity under a power purchase agreement (PPA) with an investor or financing company that buys the system from the company. Solutions and Services Operations and Maintenance The company’s solar power systems are designed to generate electricity over a system life typically exceeding 25 years. It offers operations and maintenance services, including remote monitoring services, preventative and corrective maintenance, as well as rapid-response outage restoration and inverter repair, with the objective of optimizing its customers' electrical energy production over the life of the system. The company generally provides a warranty for the performance of the solar panels that it manufactures at certain levels of power output for 25 years. The company incorporates information technology platforms to facilitate the management of its solar power systems operating worldwide. The SunPower Monitoring System provides customers real-time performance status of their solar power system, with access to historical or daily system performance data through its customer Website (www.sunpowermonitor.com). The SunPower Monitoring System is available through applications on Apple and Android devices. In 2014, the company launched SunPower Spectrum, its comprehensive software solution for its indirect and direct sales channels that automates the sale, design, and proposal optimization of residential solar systems, as well as the project management, installation, and ongoing operations and maintenance of those same systems. SunPower Spectrum enables the company’s channel partners to deliver a premium customer experience that matches the technology underpinnings of SunPower panels. Smart Energy The company sees Smart Energy as a way to harness its world’s energy potential by connecting the most solar systems on the market. Its Smart Energy initiative is designed to add layers of intelligent control to homes, buildings and grids—all pers
