Sun­Power Cor­po­ra­tion and Toy­ota an­nounced that Sun­Power is de­sign­ing and plans to con­struct a 7.75 MW so­lar power sys­tem at Toy­ota’s new North Amer­i­can head­quar­ters in Plano, Texas, which the auto maker plans to oc­cupy next year. Ex­pected to gen­er­ate 25 per cent of the head­quar­ters’ to­tal elec­tric­ity de­mand, the sys­tem is an­tic­i­pated to be the largest cor­po­rate of­fice on-site so­lar in­stal­la­tion among non-util­ity com­pa­nies in Texas. The project will be com­prised of three so­lar car­port struc­tures us­ing high ef­fi­ciency Sun­Power so­lar pan­els. Two of the car­ports will each have a 2.45 MW ca­pac­ity, and are planned to be op­er­a­tional by mid-year 2017. The third, 2.83 MW so­lar car­port is ex­pected to be de­liv­er­ing power for the Toy­ota cam­pus by end-of-year 2017.
