SAN JOSE, Calif., Nov. 30 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- SunPower Corp. (Nasdaq: SPWRA, SPWRB), a Silicon Valley-based manufacturer of high-efficiency solar cells, solar panels and solar systems, today announced that Sun Light & Power, a SunPower Premier Dealer, has won the prestigious SunPower 'Intelegant Award for Excellence' in residential solar-electric power system installation. The company received the award for its installation of a 4.05-kilowatt SunPower solar system on the San Mateo, Calif. home of D'Arcy Roche.

The SunPower Intelegant Award recognizes residential SunPower solar-electric power system installations that exemplify SunPower's commitment to excellence in aesthetics, quality and performance. Award-winning installations are selected for the quality of the design and installation as well as homeowner satisfaction.

"Sun Light & Power has been installing solar systems for more than three decades and we're thrilled that more and more homeowners are choosing to install solar systems to help power their homes," said Gary Gerber, president and founder of Sun Light & Power. "Not only are we committed to delivering the highest level of products and services, we are experts in designing solar systems for challenging rooftops. SunPower's high-efficiency solar panels help us to succeed with this goal and we are very proud to be this year's recipient of the Intelegant Award."

"My goal was to install a solar system that would equal or exceed my annual energy consumption measured in kilowatt hours," said N. D'Arcy Roche, homeowner. "Sun Light & Power successfully designed and installed a solar-electric system for my tile roof that generates the highest energy yield with the fewest number of panels. Using SunPower's high-efficiency all-black solar panels, the system has generated twice my summer electrical demand and I'm confident I will end the year as a net contributor to the grid. I'm very pleased with the appearance of the panels, too."

There are more than 900 residential and small commercial solar installers in the SunPower global dealer network. Dealers are provided training in the installation of SunPower products, and work closely with the company to provide customers with superior levels of service.
