Martifer Solar has completed its first 368kW SmartPark solar carport system in the U.S. The 35,000-square-foot installation was built for the Antelope Valley Transit Authority (AVTA) in Lancaster, CA.
The carport structure consists of over 300kW of SmartPark modules, as well as a smaller roof-mounted system and was funded by the Transit Investments for Greenhouse Gas and Energy Reduction (TIGGER) grant program under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA).
Raffi Agopian, CEO of Martifer Solar’s U.S. headquarters in West Los Angeles, said, “This system is an elegant combination of both form and function, and is very versatile. It perfectly matched the renewable energy goals of the Antelope Valley Transit Authority, while also meeting their need for better parking facilities for their employees and visitors. It was a great win-win solution.”
