A corporate affiliate of The Naturener Group, a Spanish company, will own the solar power plant, and SunPower expects the system will begin operating in September 2008.

Marco Northland, general manager of SunPower’s European operations, said: Once again we are teaming with Naturener to deliver clean, reliable solar power to the rapidly expanding Spanish market. By using the industry-leading SunPower Tracker technology, Naturener will maximize the solar plant’s energy delivery, while optimizing land use and reducing related costs.

Rafael Sanchez-Castillo, CEO of The Naturener Group, said: SunPower’s engineering, procurement and construction expertise will be key to meeting our budget and schedule targets. We are pleased to continue the solar power segment of our renewable energy portfolio in Spain.
