Subject: Spectacular Solar Canopy completed at Motorcars Honda, Cleveland Heights OH
Release: Motorcars Honda in Cleveland Ohio completed a uniquely spectacular solar canopy at its Mayfield Road facility in the spring of 2015. The Solar Canopy was designed and built by Structural Solar LLC as part is its subcontract agreement under Dovetail Solar and Wind. The highly attractive double barrel vault design was the inspiration of the Motorcars Honda owners and management team. The installation enabled the car dealership to create an outdoor showroom while simultaneously expanding its commitment to renewable energy. The 350 KW installation was among the largest of its kind at a car dealership in North America. The all welded tube design with long span barrel vault trusses were shop painted with an industrial marine grade finish and erected on top of a precast parking deck. According to Robert Pegnato, President of Structural Solar LLC, the commitment on the part of the company was exceptional and their focus on community and customer service is remarkable. And the Dovetail Solar and Wind team also deserves a great deal of recognition. It was a complex project but Dovetail was highly professional and well organized to coordinate and manage the installation. The Motorcars project has garnered significant regional and even national news coverage and in fact hosted the Green Energy Ohio conference in June of last year.
