Solar Panels in Unusual Places and Spaces

Off the roof solar is becoming more and more popular and accepted as residents and businesses try to find ways to incorporate solar with structures you use everyday.

With off-the-roof solar installations, solar companies, installers, homeowners, and businesses can now look at solar in a whole different light.

Corona Solar Powered Bus Stops

The city of Corona unveiled a solar-powered bus stop that powers a nearby intersection and feeds power back into the city grid, reports The Press-Enterprise. The six solar panels on the bus stop generate 1,114 watts per hour, according to Solade Concepts, which headed the project.

The city says the project will likely cover the majority of the $100 it costs per month to run the intersection.

Solade Concepts Takes PV Off the Roof

Solade Concepts is a leading innovator for taking solar "off the roof" and utilizing it at the ground level.

They have developed a variety of grid-tied solar shade structures including a Solar Cabana Series, a Solar Umbrella Series, a Solar Grid Station Series with multi-use products including The Comfort Station and The EV Charging Station.

Solade Concepts also provides a number of solar structure applications including:

  • carports
  • patio shelters
  • bus shelters
  • covered bicycle racks
  • covered walk ways
  • canopies
  • commercial mounting stations
The commercial mounting stations mount PV arrays on the wall, not the roof.These Solar Mounting Stations will support Solar Panels in conjunction with the building walls at the top of the roof but not on the roof itself to address questions like:

Will the roof structure support the addition weight?

What happens when the roof needs to be repaired or replaced?

Unique, patented designs add a "helping hand" to the wall, eliminating weight and stress. The conventional roof can be accessed for repairs or replacement because the wall-mounted Solar Mounting Station is out of the way.
