"Solar carports make sense because they provide electricity as well as shade," said GEG Production Director Daniel Besson. "High efficiency SunPower solar panels were the best choice for our carports because they maximize electricity output in space-constrained areas, and are recognized for high performance and reliability. The panels are manufactured sustainably, which enables these projects to meet environmental standards set by CRE, France's energy regulatory commission."

"Compared to conventional panels, SunPower E-Series solar panels produce 45 percent more energy in the same space over 25 years, and offer the solar industry's best warranty, guaranteeing power and product quality for 25 years," said SunPower Executive Vice President Peter Aschenbrenner. "SunPower is proud to partner with GEG on its innovative PARKOSOL program, promoting the increased use of cost-competitive, emission-free solar power in the Grenoble area."
