Project Focus: Solaire to supply multimegawatt PV parking canopy system at New Jersey site


Solaire Generation has been tapped to supply a system of its photovoltaic parking structures for a large commercial solar power plant at an unnamed Fortune 100 corporate office campus in central New Jersey. The 3MW-plus canopy installation, made up of 25 rows of more than 11,350 crystalline-silicon panels covering over 1350 parking spaces, was begun in July and will be completed by early 2011, according to the company.

Once commissioned, the PV canopy systems—which feature Solaire’s patented dual-incline, integrated decking/gutter design—will generate more than 4 million KWh annually.

The financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

“We’re thrilled to be part of such an important, large-scale project,” said Laurence Mackler, CEO of Solaire. “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 company said it expects to build canopies supporting at least 5MW of installed PV capacity by the end of this year.
