STURGIS SOUTH DAKOTA
Sturgis Harley Davidson Rally Point Canopy
Location : Sturgis South Dakota
Size: 40,000 Watts
This Solar Canopy provides a very attractive shade and green energy to a very busy site in Sturgis, SD.
The energy collected will help offset the energy use at City Hall. The cost of the solar canopy is estimated to cost $225K. The structure has more than a 20-year lifespan and requires very little maintenance. A monitoring station is set up to monitor the rate of energy collected at any given time. About 90% of construction takes place on the ground, making construction three-times faster than traditional carport designs. After on-the-ground assembly, panel placement, inverter mounting, wiring and lighting, the canopy units are lifted by crane for final attachment, minimizing overhead work and optimizing worksite safety.
