From a variety of categories, the 2020 Solar Builder Editor's Choice Award for Coolest Carport went to the project of Sunview Development Corp. | Durant, Oklahoma. In total, 48 individual existing carports each were topped with 16-panel solar systems. Our CompactMETAL system solution was used to attach the panels to the metal roofs. With this solar-topped carports, Sunview is able to offer homes with overall lower electric bills vs. other rentals, helping each family save about $850 annually on electricity.
The 2020 Residential Solar Project of the Year, as voted on by the readers of Solar Builder, is the Villa Residence and Home Brewery, located in Arvada, Colorado. For this project, our CompactGROUND ground-mounted solution was used. By installing the solar system, the electricity bill was reduced by over 90 percent and most of all, the owners are proud to be brewing their beer sustainably.
