Solar parking.


The Kyocera Solar Grove Parking Lot. Employee parking lots which generate electricity. Seems like one of those ‘what took you so long?’ ideas, doesn’t it? Especially with a payback period of just 12 years.

 Solar Grove—an array of 25 “solar trees” that converts a 186-vehicle parking lot into a 235-kW solar electric generating system. Based on test conditions and adjusted for inverter efficiency estimated at 94%, the 235 kW system is capable of generating 421,000 kilowatt hours per year. The system’s 25 solar trees form a carport in a Kyocera employee parking lot, utilizing a total of 1,400 Kyocera KC-187G solar photovoltaic (PV) modules and 200 custom-manufactured, light-filtering PV modules.
