renewz and SILFAB unite to promote sustainable electric mobility at Greenbuild 2013

  • Rapidly-deployed solar charging carport delivers unique sustainability icon
  • Minimized site disruption through ballasted canopy and Integrated Power Box
  • American-made DC optimized solar technology maximizes shaded power output

PHILADELPHIA – renewz sustainable solutions inc. and SILFAB Ontario, announce that a solar carport will be built on-site, at booth 801 of the Greenbuild Exposition in Philadelphia from November 20-21st, 2013, combining SILFAB’s advanced solar panels with renewz® foundation-free and software integration of the isola™ solar charging station.

“We are pleased to launch this new solar carport design at Greenbuild, combining the best of European structural design and American solar power technology” said Sass M. Peress, CEO of renewz®. “When SILFAB’s power-optimized solar panels are mated with our rapidly-deployed aluminum structure, web-based power monitoring, lighting and media capabilities, and Eaton’s (NYSE: ETN) electric vehicle charging power solutions, our solar charging station is able to deliver the ultimate platform for any organization”. “Whether for a school’s 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, each of solar canopy projects is designed to provides customers with a most satisfying turnkey experience”.

“As electric vehicles become prevalent in America, distributed power generation systems 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 carport at Greenbuild feature a “green to green” production process and are equipped with Tigo power optimizers to maximize energy produced in shaded areas, while providing module level monitoring, and quicker ROI. This technology mates itself well with renewz’ superior design and installation process, giving site owners greater flexibility in positioning, should parking layouts change”.

Built in just a few hours at the Pennsylvania Convention Center, the solar carport will host a BMW i3 all-electric vehicle, demonstrating the potential for emission-free driving.
