4,000 Solar Panel Project Installed on Bose Mountain

SAN JOSE, CALIFORNIA – A 1.7-megawatt solar installation from SunPower is now fully operational at Bose Corporation’s headquarters in Framingham.

SunPower designed, constructed, financed, and will operate and maintain the fixed-tilt, ground-mount system along the southern hillside of what is commonly known as “The Mountain.”

Nearly 4,000 high-quality SunPower® solar panels are expected to generate 2.4 million kilowatt hours of energy annually, bringing enough electricity onto the grid to supply a substantial portion of the Bose campus through a 20-year power purchase agreement.

“Corporate renewable energy programs are growing, especially in Massachusetts where Bose is headquartered,” said Nam Nguyen, SunPower executive vice president, commercial solar, in a media statement. “We’re proud to be working with Bose to further advance solar development in the Commonwealth, and to support the company’s commitment to long-term sustainability as a leading global brand.”

SunPower, the No. 1 commercial solar provider in America with the most megawatts installed according to Wood Mackenzie (formerly GTM Research), has a footprint across the U.S. including Massachusetts and New England.
