SunPower Corp. says it has signed a power purchase agreement with Pacific Gas and Electric (PG&E) for delivery of the 100 MW Henrietta solar project, to be located in Kings County, Calif. PG&E estimates that the project will provide the equivalent power required for approximately 36,000 average California homes.

At the site, SunPower will deploy the SunPower OasisTM power plant, a modular solar power block that uses 435 MW SunPower solar panels with the SunPower T0 Tracker. Additional SunPower Oasis features include pre-manufactured cabling to minimize on-site wiring and the Oasis smart inverter control system to enhance grid interoperability, the company adds.

This contract is contingent upon approval by the California Public Utilities Commission and SunPower's ability to complete all applicable permits. Sunpower expects construction to begin in 2015, with commercial operation by late 2016.
