Quest Renewables Partners with Standard Solar on Large Scale Commercial Parking Deck Rooftop Array
Quest Renewables, Inc., announces the successful installation of a commercial-scale solar canopy system atop a parking deck rooftop for a commercial based real estate developer in Montgomery County, MD. The 304 kW solar system features ten of Quest Renewables’ QuadPod™ Solar Canopies. Standard Solar, Inc., completed the installation of the 304 kW system in late 2016.
“Solar canopies on parking garages are an ideal solution for energy savings, especially in urban areas,” said Scott Wiater, president & CEO, Standard Solar. “By functioning as a power source and shade for parked vehicles, they provide added value for the building owner as well as its occupants and visitors.”
During QuadPod™ installation, 95% of the construction activity takes place on the ground, including assembly and wiring. After assembly and wiring, the QuadPod™ Solar Canopies are lifted by crane for final installation. Worksites are safer and more efficient with construction crews working on the ground and not at height.
The QuadPod™ Solar Canopy allows site-owners and financiers to achieve the highest returns on their investments because of its ability to sustain the greatest power density as compared to any other carport system on the market. This is attainable because of the QuadPod’s ability to span drive aisles as opposed to just the parking spaces themselves.
Photos of the completed project are available on request.
