SunPower building 2MW plant on Korean landfill

October 5, 2007 – SunPower and Korean energy company EnE System plan to build a 2MW solar electric power plant in Jeonju, Korea’s Jeolla province, on landfill property owned by Jeonju Solar Energy. Construction is expected to be completed in January, with the Korea Energy Management Corp. providing part of the project’s funding.

The company’s proprietary single-axis solar tracking system will be installed at the 53,000 sq. m. site, delivering up to 25% more energy than traditional fixed-tilt systems, the company claims.

SunPower already has a 2.2-MW site in Mungyeong and a 1MW plant in Gwangju, a multi-year polysilicon supply agreement with Korea’s DC Chemical Co. Ltd., and is investing in a JV with Woongjin Coway to manufacture monocrystalline silicon ingots, with polysilicon supplied primarily from DC Chemical.
