SunPower Corp. has announced that SunPower has been named the official and exclusive solar technology partner of the San Francisco 49ers and the new Santa Clara Stadium.

SunPower will supply 400 kilowatts of its high efficiency solar panels that will be used to generate enough electricity over the course of a year to offset the power consumed by the stadium during 49ers home games.

SunPower solar panels will be featured in three solar array-covered bridges, a solar canopy above the green roof on the suite tower portion of the stadium and over the 49ers training facility. The solar panels will be produced at SunPower's Silicon Valley manufacturing facility.

"We are pleased that SunPower's industry-leading solar technology will be an integral part of our innovative and sustainable vision for the stadium," said Jed York, Chief Executive Officer, San Francisco 49ers.

"As we strive to create a sports and entertainment venue that embodies all that is special about the Bay Area and Silicon Valley, it is fitting that SunPower, with its global headquarters less than two miles from the new stadium, will be providing us with its high-efficiency solar panels."

"SunPower is excited to have the opportunity to help power the new stadium with clean, reliable solar power, and to join the 49ers in a commitment to top performance, whether it is on the football field or in the solar market," said Tom Werner, president and CEO, SunPower.

"This is an ideal partnership for SunPower, as we deliver the world's highest-efficiency solar panels for the new iconic, state-of-the-art facility."
