Richard Swanson is on the Board of PWER. I am sure PWER has good relationship with SPWR to sell invertors on SunPower projects. It would be huge deal if PWER is supplying for the $2.6 Buffet project.
Dr. Swanson was the founder and former President and CTO at SunPower Corporation (Nasdaq: SPWRA and SPWRB), a leading designer and manufacturer of solar technology, and currently holds the position of President Emeritus at the company. Dr. Swanson received his Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from Stanford University in 1974. In 1976, he joined the faculty at Stanford University where he and his group conceived and developed the point-contact solar cell. In 1991, Dr. Swanson resigned from his faculty position to devote full time to SunPower Corporation, which he founded to develop and commercialize cost-effective photovoltaic power systems. During his tenure, SunPower has become a vertically-integrated vendor of photovoltaic technology and has a pipeline of over 4 GW of solar projects
