SunPower to build solar PV project at Nevada Air Force base

SunPower Corp. (Nasdaq: SPWR) will build a 19-MW solar photovoltaic (PV) power system at Nellis Air Force Base in Nevada.

NV Energy (NYSE: NVE) picked SunPower to build the project. Construction is expected to be completed in 2015, contingent on contract approval by the Nevada Public Utilities Commission. SunPower plans to build the system using a SunPower Oasis Power Plant system.

SunPower built a 14-MW (DC) solar power system at the base in 2007.
