Rapidly-deployed solar charging carport delivers unique icon for
Minimized site disruption through ballasted canopy design and Integrated
American-made DC optimized solar technology maximizes shaded power
TORONTO, ON and PHILADELPHIA, PA, Nov. 19, 2013 /CNW/ - SILFAB, of
Toronto, Canada and renewz sustainable solutions inc. of Montreal,
Canada, and, on the occasion of the Greenbuild Exposition in
Philadelphia from November 20-21st, 2013, today announced that a solar
carport will be built on-site featuring SILFAB's state-of-the-art solar
panels combined with the foundation-free design and software
integration of the isola™ solar charging station by renewz.
"As electric vehicles become prevalent in North America, distributed
power generation systems can help offset increased grid loads for both
home and business customers alike", said Wilfred Laman, Sales and
Business Development Manager of Silfab. "The solar panels loaded onto
the solar carport at Greenbuild feature a "green to green" production
process and are equipped with Tigo power optimizers to maximize energy
produced in shaded areas in which many carports find themselves, as
well as providing module level monitoring and quicker ROI. This
technological advantage mates itself well with renewz' superior design
and installation process, thus giving site owners greater flexibility
in positioning, should parking layouts change".
"We are pleased to be launching this new solar carport design at
Greenbuild, which combines the best of European structural design and
American solar power technology" said Sass M. Peress, CEO of renewz.
"When SILFAB's power-optimized solar panel technology is mated with our
maintenance-free aluminum structure, web-based power monitoring,
lighting and media capabilities, Eaton's (NYSE: ETN) electric vehicle
charger and Integrated Power Solution, our solar charging station is
able to deliver the ultimate platform for any organization". "Whether
for a school hosting a living lab, government demonstrating shared
environmental values to citizens, corporations delivering on their
sustainability commitments, utilities creating micro-grid demonstration
projects, or auto dealers supporting sales of electric vehicles, our
solar canopy provides customers with minimized site disruption and a
more satisfying project experience".
Built in just a few hours at the Pennsylvania Convention Center, the
solar carport will host a BMWi3 all-electric vehicle for the first time
