The new facility is close to its existing plant. 

“The acquisition of this building provides SunPower with the option to accelerate our growth plans,” the San Jose, Calif.-based company said. “Plant 2 will be a larger manufacturing facility than Plant 1, offering us economies of scale and maximizing our opportunities for rapid cycles of learning from line to line.”
