SunPower announced that 750 kilowatts of high efficiency SunPower® E-Series solar panels are powering three new carports in Grenoble. The project was led by regional utility GEG, in coordination with OSER and Grenoble Alpes Metropole, as part of its PARKOSOL program. PARKOSOL develops solar carport projects to serve the greater Grenoble area.

GEG Production Director Daniel Besson said that "Solar carports make sense because they provide electricity as well as shade. High efficiency SunPower solar panels were the best choice for our carports because they maximize electricity output in space-constrained areas, and are recognized for high performance and reliability. The panels are manufactured sustainably, which enables these projects to meet environmental standards set by CRE, France's energy regulatory commission."

SunPower Executive Vice President Peter Aschenbrenner said that "Compared to conventional panels, SunPower E-Series solar panels produce 45 percent more energy in the same space over 25 years, and offer the solar industry's best warranty, guaranteeing power and product quality for 25 years. SunPower is proud to partner with GEG on its innovative PARKOSOL program, promoting the increased use of cost-competitive, emission-free solar power in the Grenoble area."

SunPower's direct current E-Series solar panels, as well as its X-Series solar panels, are Cradle to Cradle Certified™ Silver. SunPower is the first solar panel manufacturer in the world to achieve this designation, which demonstrates a product's quality based on rankings in five categories: material health, material reutilization, renewable energy use, water stewardship, and social fairness.
