We are finding that some of our customers in warm sunny climates are very interested in creating a shade spot with a PV system.  If you have an idea for a carport or patio in full sun, you can make shade and power at the same time.

This system, above, looks great and makes the perfect shade spot for their patio barbecue (this is a system in the 2KW range). Porches and awnings are also capable of being power and shade producers!  All you need is unobscured sunlight.

Technical details for the Solar Pergola are:

  • 12 Sanyo Bifacial 186 watt solar modules
  • Fronius IG2000 inverter
  • Custom built redwood pergola by Burgurello/Rastelli Construction of Reno, NV

System produces ~ 310.7kW per month in Reno, NV
