A 1.7 MW solar installation from SunPower is now fully operational at the Framingham, Mass., headquarters of audio equipment company Bose Corp.
SunPower designed, constructed and financed the fixed-tilt, ground-mount system, located along the southern hillside of what is commonly known as “The Mountain.” SunPower will also operate and maintain the facility.
Nearly 4,000 SunPower solar panels are expected to generate 2.4 million kWh of energy annually, bringing enough electricity onto the grid to supply a substantial portion of the Bose campus through a 20-year power purchase agreement.
“Corporate renewable energy programs are growing, especially in Massachusetts, where Bose is headquartered,” says Nam Nguyen, SunPower’s executive vice president of commercial solar. “We’re proud to be working with Bose to further advance solar development in the commonwealth and to support the company’s commitment to long-term sustainability as a leading global brand.”
