SunPower Corp. (NASDAQ: SPWR) today announced a new program with U.S. Bancorp (NYSE: USB) to expand financing options available to homeowners interested in high-efficiency SunPower solar power systems, the most efficient solar technology available today. Two to three thousand homes are expected to benefit from the new program.
"U.S. Bank is pleased to help advance SunPower's efforts to make renewable energy accessible to more American homeowners," said Darren Van't Hof, director of renewable energy investments for U.S. Bancorp.
