SAN JOSE, Calif., 15. Dec 2010/PRNewswire-FirstCall/–SunPower Corporation (Nasdaq: SPWRA, SPWRB), Silicon Valley based on an efficient solar cells, solar panels and photo-voltaic, the manufacturer, today announced AUO SunPower Sdn. Bhd., a joint venture company of the solar cell fabrication facility (Fab 3) Malaysia with the inauguration of the AU Optronics Corp. (TAIEX: 2409; NYSE: AUO).

Construction and Fab 3, Melaka, Kuala Lumpur, which is located on the ramp continue through 2013 and when completed, is expected to create more than 1,400 megawatts, on a yearly basis, an efficient solar cell range. Two of the building of the port facility is 108,000 square meters (more than 1 million square feet), which is approximately the size of seven football fields in the US and the house of the solar cell production lines fully 28 online. After the October this year, the production of the FAB 3 has already produced approximately 5 megawatts Gen-2 solar cells 22,5% conversion efficiency.
“We are pleased to reserve the use of this possibility and to celebrate the success of the AUO SunPower-joint venture,” said Lee, AUO Chairman 7105. “AUO SunPower-Fab is already running, by making us the leading manufacturing technology and effectively run the General actions and care.

With SunPower’s Fab 2, fully online since 2009 January, FAB has been recognized by the International Energy Agency of its 3 highly energy-efficient design. In addition, the Fab 3 has applied for the administrative building and the cell Fab, energy and environmental Design (LEED) gold and silver certifications LeaderSHIP accordingly. Fab 3 was designed to serve several energy efficient features, which help to increase the effectiveness of the operations and reduce energy costs. These properties include:
* The Sun covered parking, which offers 2. report on the implementation of the annual electricity generation at least 6
* Rooftop solar all site facilities for a total of more than 10 megawatts of electricity each year
* Maintenance of tracks, Rain water for environmental protection and water recycling
* Improved HVAC refrigeration and heating systems, which provides a much smaller footprint, the port facility, in the case of this size and type
* 100% of the capacity created by the warm water heating heat recovery air compressors
* Cooling efficiency of the system, which uses about 40% less power compared to a typical systems in the area of Melaka
