Solar system supplier SunPower is to construct two solar power projects for Yolo County in California.

Both projects are under construction and are expected to generate 5.8MW of solar power for the residents in Yolo County.

The first project is planned to be built at the corner of West Beamer Street and Cottonwood Street in Woodland and the second at Grassland Regional Park in Davis, California.

The two new systems will be sold to the county under a low interest public financing price.

SunPower has previously installed the county’s initial ground-mounted solar system with a capacity of 1MW at the Yolo County Justice Centre in Woodland, California in 2010.

Terry Vernon, Yolo County’s general services deputy director said: “To facilitate the county's increased commitment to solar, we're pleased to partner again with SunPower on these significant projects. Solar power is an easy, affordable means to reduce county operational costs as well as our dependence on fossil fuels. With SunPower as our solar technology provider, we're confident that the systems will generate approximately $51 million savings over the next 25 years for the benefit of Yolo County residents and businesses.”

Howard Wenger, SunPower’s president said: “Yolo County is saving money, creating jobs and producing clean, reliable energy for county operations. We are thrilled to partner with the county with the implementation of SunPower's proven, high performing technology, which will deliver guaranteed performance for years to come.”

The two solar power systems are mounted on the ground and are planning to become operational later this summer.

SunPower will supply solar panels for both projects. The first system in Davis will be equipped with SunPower panels mounted on the SunPower T0 Tracker system.

The US Environmental Protection Agency predicts Yolo County's new systems to reduce 5,600 tons of carbon dioxide emissions annually, offsetting the emissions from over 26,000 cars from California's roads for the first 25 years of the systems' operation.
