ASU, SRP, SunPower team on solar at Polytech campus

Arizona State University and SunPower Corp. are building a 1-megawatt solar power plant on the university’s Polytechnic campus in Mesa, with Salt River Project signing up to buy the power.
The site will be the first commercial installation of SunPower’s C7 Tracker, which allows the panels to track the sun. It also features mirrors to reflect more sunlight on the panels, which are the most efficient cells on the market.
The deal will have SRP buy the power from the plant, and then ASU will buy back the power from the utility to meet Polytechnic’s needs. Its output is equal to the power used by 225 homes.
ASU has been installing solar at all of its campuses during the past several years, and as of the end of 2011, the university has 14.5 megawatts of panels at its facilities.
