Recognizing the Most Innovative, Green Products Transforming the Building Industry and Earning Customers More LEED Points.

BuildingGreen – a trusted, independent source among builders for over 30 years – has long recognized green building products that help transform the industry by conserving energy and water, reducing emissions, and improving the overall environmental impact of physical structures.

Today, SunPower announces that its solar carport solutions are being recognized as one of BuildingGreen's top 10 recommended products for 2018.

"Our annual, Top 10 Green Building Products list represents the most exciting new innovations and biggest breakthroughs in health and environmental performance across all major building product sectors," said Brent Ehrlich, BuildingGreen's products and materials specialist.

"We selected SunPower's carport solutions for their use of underutilized spaces, and for their multi-functional structural designs that can incorporate graywater and EV charging. SunPower's efficient solar panels are also Cradle to Cradle Certified™ Silver and can count toward LEED credits."

Drawing on decades of experience, SunPower has designed and engineered a suite of commercial solar carport solutions that efficiently monetize available space such as ground-level parking lots and the tops of parking garages.

SunPower® E-Series or X-Series direct current solar panels can be affixed to the top of the carports, generating clean electricity and providing shade to vehicles underneath.

These top-performing solar panels generate 45 percent more energy in the same space over 25 years when compared to conventional panels, contributing up to 35 percent of the credits required for the U.S. Green Building Council's LEED certification.

They are also the first and only solar panels to receive Cradle to Cradle Certified™ Silver designation which demonstrates a product's quality based on five categories: material health, material reutilization, renewable energy use, water stewardship and social fairness.

"Our carports are sustainable, innovative solutions for companies looking to achieve reliable energy cost savings with solar while optimizing land use and adding an elegant, multi-functional feature to campuses that employees benefit from as well," said Norm Taffe, SunPower's executive vice president of products.

"We are proud to see SunPower's solar carport offerings recognized by reputable experts knowledgeable in sustainable building and design, and look forward to delivering superior performance and value to more customers with our leading energy solutions."

SunPower's integrated carport designs also offer add-on features including water management, energy storage, electric vehicle charging, and energy-efficient lighting, giving customers more ways to enhance corporate sustainability efforts.
