Why SunPower (SPWR) Stock Is Up Today

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- SunPower (SPWR) was gaining 5% to $37.45 Monday after announcing a partnership with Admirals Bank.

The partnership will offer a $200 million load program for SunPower residential projects for the next two years. Homeowners can apply for a loan of up to $60,000 to install a SunPower solar system on their home under the program.

"In some cases, the loan payment may be equal to or less than a homeowner's current utility bill and, once the loan is paid off, the homeowner will own a system that can produce clean electricity for the life of the system," SunPower CFO Chuck Boynton said in a press release. "They may also benefit from increased home value as a result of the solar system on the roof."
