Empower Energies Completes Construction on a 1.8 MW Solar Garage Parking Canopy Project in the Sunshine State

Bethesda, MD August 20, 2020

Empower Energies recently completed construction of a 1,803 kW-DC solar parking garage canopy installation for a Fortune 500 commercial client in Highland Manor, Florida.

The completion of this project is the first of three large C&I solar projects Empower is designing and constructing at the same customer site. Solar canopies now shade over six hundred parking spaces and are converting Florida sunshine to clean electric generation. The canopies are also equipped with LED lighting for enhanced parking lot security and are integrated into a cutting-edge blockchain management system for the client.

Highland Manor project is just one of more than two dozen solar installations Empower is currently developing and constructing under an exclusive multi-year contract for this Fortune 500 client. At the completion of Empower’s work, the client will be one of the largest on-site corporate renewable power generators in the U.S. Under this innovative contracting structure, Empower is responsible for the end to end deployment of solar systems across the customer’s national footprint of commercial offices. Empower conducts site analysis and feasibility rankings based on the client’s parameters, designs the systems, and manages the construction and long-term O&M – providing the client with turnkey service and a single point of accountability, while reducing deployment costs and ensuring consistency and coordination across the entire Program.

“Empower Energies is excited to make this and other corporate renewable programs possible and help our Fortune 500 clients achieve their renewable energy and ESG goals,” said Empower’s CEO John Clapp.
