SunPower, a developer of solar technology, has been selected to design, build, operate and maintain the 10MW Dover SUN Park in Delaware for White Oak Solar Energy, a subsidiary of LS Power.

The solar park, which is expected to be operational next summer, will deliver emission-free solar power to the regional utility grid operated by the city of Dover.

The company will install SunPower Tracker systems at the 103-acre site, with SunPower E19 solar panels.

The Tracker follows the sun’s movement during the day, increasing sunlight capture by up to 25% over conventional fixed-tilt systems, while reducing land use requirements, SunPower said.

SunPower managing director Steve Vavrik said that the company’s sun-tracking technology is fast to install and reliably delivers clean power during peak demand periods, making solar a competitively-priced choice for power plant applications.

White Oak will sell the energy and environmental attributes from the Dover SUN Park through long-term agreements with the city of Dover, Delmarva Power and Light, Delaware Municipal Electric Corporation and the Delaware Sustainable Energy Utility.
