    NEW YORK, N.Y., April 4, 2011Solaire Generation, a leading designer, manufacturer and installer of patented solar photovoltaic parking structures, has recently transformed a typical corporate parking lot into an elegant solar power plant — the largest corporate one in the nation. The 3.6 megawatt solar-power project, completed on time and on budget, is in service at a Fortune 100 corporate office campus in central New Jersey."In 2010, our first year in production, we installed 5 megawatts of power and provided 90 jobs, from manufacturing and construction to professional services," said Laurence Mackler, CEO and Founder of Solaire Generation.The Premium™ parking canopy supports more than 210,000 square feet of solar panels, 3.6 MW, and covers more than 1,300 parking spaces. The total system is made up of 25 structures, each with an average length of 200 feet and a 35-foot wingspan. If lined up contiguously, the structures would add up to 1.1 miles of solar canopy. The patented dual-incline design generates electricity equal to 340 U.S. households’ annual energy consumption.


    Safety features include: piers made of reinforced concrete that protect both the electrical conduit and the
    canopy structure and a minimum clearance of 13.6’ to allow commercial vehicles and equipment to move
    freely around the site.


    “In 2010, our first year in production, we installed 5 megawatts of power and provided 90 jobs, from manufacturing and construction to professional services,” said Laurence Mackler, CEO and Founder of Solaire Generation. “All renewable energy is important for the present and future of United States and the world,” said Mackler. “Solaire is inspired to make a significant and enduring contribution to the development of solar energy,” he said. “We see power everywhere.”


    The PremiumTM is the only existing commercial parking canopy to offer an integrated decking and gutter system that protects people and cars from snow and ice, and guards the system’s wiring and panels against unauthorized access.
