SunPower Concentrated Photovoltaic C7 Tracker Delivers Lowest Cost for Utility-Scale Solar Power Plants
Achieves Up to 20 Percent Lower Levelized Cost of Electricity than Competing Technologies
The SunPower™ C7 Tracker, a solar photovoltaic tracking system, concentrates the sun’s power seven times to achieve the lowest levelized cost of electricity (LCOE) for utility-scale solar power plants available today.
The C7 Tracker combines single-axis tracking technology with rows of parabolic mirrors, reflecting light onto 22.8 percent efficient SunPower Maxeon™ solar cells, which are the world’s most efficient commercially available solar cells. Using mirrors to reduce the number of cells required to generate electricity lowers the LCOE by up to 20 percent compared to competing technologies. For example, a 400-megawatt C7 Tracker power plant requires less than 70 megawatts of SunPower solar cells. This record-breaking CPV tracker solution is based on SunPower’s proven experience in tracking systems, including the SunPower® T0 Solar Tracker.
