Solaire Generation Breaks Ground on Major Solar Parking Lot Project

Solaire Generation, a leading designer, manufacturer and installer of solar photovoltaic (PV) parking structures, has been selected to supply solar parking canopies for of one of the largest solar power installations at a single commercial site in the U.S. The overall 4.1 megawatt solar-power project is being built at a Fortune 100 corporate office campus in central New Jersey. The project is scheduled to reach completion by early 2011.
The Solaire Parking Canopies?, will support  more than 11,350 high-efficiency solar panels and will cover about 1,350 parking spaces. When complete, a total of 1.1 miles of canopies, which feature a patented dual incline design, will support a PV solar power system providing electricity equal to the annual consumption of more than 320 U.S. households.

"We're thrilled to be part of such an important, large-scale project," said Laurence Mackler, CEO of Solaire Generation. "The solar potential of commercial parking lots is enormous and we look forward to helping more organizations take advantage of this form or renewable energy."

The Solaire Parking Canopy? is the only currently installed commercial parking canopy to offer an integrated decking and gutter system that protects people and cars from snow and ice, and protects the wiring and panels from unauthorized access. Snow and rainwater captured by the canopies can be recycled for irrigation and other gray water uses.   Solaire expects to build canopies supporting at least 5 MW of installed capacity by the end of 2010.
