Please describe the project specifications

Our Heavy Duty Portable Solar Canopy is a canopy built to withstand environmental conditions, with the option of being used as a permanent structure and expanded as a parallel structure. It is a fully relocatable canopy that is integrated with solar panels and can provide sustainable power anywhere that receives sunlight. It is designed and built to meet the needs of businesses that want energy sources that capable of being independent from the local electric grid. The integrated solar power aids in eliminating the environmental impact associated with traditional sources of energy, in addition to the need to build permanent infrastructure. The implemented 20 ft x 24 ft structure provides a bay under an angled roof for maximum sun exposure. Multiple canopies can connect side by side to meet the needs of the client. It is designed to withstand extreme weather conditions (including hurricane zones), while also flexible enough for speedy assembly/disassembly when necessary. While it is ideal for meeting clients' needs for charging equipment, the energy provided by the canopy can also be used to power other devices such as cell phones, laptops, lighting, and other gear.

What is unique or complex about the project?

This project is one that we are very proud of. It has met the sustainability and functionality needs for multiple businesses, and it is a project of ours that is constantly being innovated. A high quality, durable canopy that is able to be used as a permanent structure while being fully relocatable, withstand extreme weather conditions, and provide sustainable energy is rare. We are pleased to help businesses integrate practical sustainable practices in industrial settings.
