October 11 (Solar) – US solar company SunPower Corp (NASDAQ:SPWR) said today it has completed a 1.7-MW solar installation at the headquarters of audio equipment company Bose Corp in Framingham, Massachusetts.
The fixed-tilt, ground-mount system made up of almost 4,000 SunPower solar panels is now fully operational. SunPower designed, built and financed the array and will also operate and maintain it.
