Urban Energy

Urban Energy’s world-class canopy design increases module capacity by 50% and energy production by 100% as compared to a traditional roof-level system. The 10’ raised canopy bypasses obstructions and fire lanes while optimizing bifacial module production — in fact, an independent engineer has verified a 15% bifacial adder for the design as compared to the 5% expected from a roof-level system. Rather than land posts on the roof, the design incorporates exterior-wall straps to counteract uplift while minimizing loads on pre-war roofs. Finally, the roof clearance maintains the potential for future rooftop energy storage.
