This morning ReVision Energy flipped the switch to power the first solar parking garage canopy in the state of Maine. The 194kW system on the top level of the Fore Street Garage provides shaded parking and cover from the elements for vehicles and provides clean, local, renewable energy to the Hyatt Place. The project was completed in record install time for a parking garage solar canopy, and was featured in the Portland Press Herald and Solar Power World.
Fortunat Mueller, co-founder and managing partner of Revision Energy, said of the installation, “Quest Renewables’ innovative QuadPod™ solar canopy allowed us to meet a very aggressive schedule at a particularly challenging site. The Quest team was terrific to work with from start to finish and allowed us to deliver a beautiful, efficient and long lasting solar project to our client with minimal interruption to their business. We’re excited about having introduced this innovative parking canopy to the New England market and look forward to pursuing additional opportunities together throughout Maine, New Hampshire and Massachusetts.”
