NEW YORK, July 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ – Solaire Generation, the market leader for innovative solar parking structures, introduces the Max Rack™, a proprietary mounting system for its line of solar parking canopies. Company representatives will be available to discuss the Max Rack™, as well as their other leading products, which include the Premium, The Solaire 360, The Solairis, and the Long Span R5 solar parking canopies, at this year’s Intersolar North America trade show in San Francisco, at the Moscone West Convention Center (booth 9219 on the 3rd Level)…
Solaire Generation unveiled its patent pending Premium F2 Solar Carport Structure at a GE facility in Plainville, Conn., as part of GE’s largest Electric-Vehicle (EV) charging station installation in North America.
Connecticut Governor Dannel Malloy, Luis Ramirez, CEO of GE Energy Industrial Solutions, and Laurence Mackler, CEO of Solaire Generation, were present at the opening ceremony.
“Solaire Generation is proud to have been selected to design, fabricate and install our solar carport for General Electric and Inovateus,” said Mr. Mackler. “This project exemplifies Solaire’s continued commitment to innovation and supports our mission to making a significant and enduring contribution to the development of solar energy.”
Mr. Ramirez stated that the “Solar Carport provides clean energy alternatives to oil and biofuels, expands our ability to capture the sun’s energy and helps us deliver a viable EV ecosystem. This is a bright day for EV infrastructure development in Connecticut and the nation.”
Solaire Generation’s Premium F2 solar carport features an innovative dual incline design that generates high energy yields and protects against rain, snow, and ice. The F2 seamlessly integrates GE’s technology, utilizing Solaire’s structure and wiring systems to support GE EverGold Safety Switches and GE Combiner Boxes along with GE EV Charging Stations. GE’s core AC equipment safely distributes power generated from the solar panels.
Governor Malloy said, “This exciting project will be a blueprint for people all around the country who are interested in developing this type of green solar charging technology, linking renewable energy with electric vehicles and making our lives cleaner and greener.”
GE is Solaire Generation’s first installation to incorporate Solaire’s patent pending advertising and branding platform that offers 200 square feet of advertising per parking space. Solaire’s unique advertising and branding options may improve the financial returns of installing solar energy in parking lots by providing additional revenue streams.
Smart grid technology is used to fully charge up to 13 electric vehicles per day via six Level 2 GE EV Charging Stations. The 98.7kW project will produce the energy equivalent to power 20 homes per year. The average freestanding home uses approximately 7,000 to 10,000 kW hours per year.
Solaire Generation, a market leader in solar carport design, innovation and technology, will be exhibiting at this year’s Intersolar North America trade show in San Francisco, CA. Solaire will be featuring their newest products, including the Premium F2, Solaire 360, and Solairis solar carports, at the Moscone West Convention Center at booth 7128 on the 1st level.
“We are looking forward to attending this year’s Intersolar North America trade show”, said Laurence Mackler, CEO and founder of Solaire Generation. “Our company’s commitment to aesthetics and innovation is evident in the F2’s ground breaking design with integrated advertising and branding. Potential revenue streams from advertising can improve the financial returns of installing solar in parking lots.”
Mr. Mackler will be presenting at the Intersolar North America conference on the topic “Solaire Generation – Architecturally Integrated Renewable Energy (AIRE™) from 5:35 PM to 6:00 PM at the InterContinental Hotel San Francisco in the Grand Ballroom on the 3rd level.
Solaire will be exhibiting the Premium F2 solar carport, along with their other product lines, at the trade show. The Premium F2 features a unique dual incline design that generates high energy yields and protects against rain, snow and ice. Both the Premium F1 and F2 solar carports feature an integrated decking and gutter system that adds safety and security to the solar system, while also offering an option for water reclamation. Solaire recently unveiled the Premium F2 model at a GE campus and has built the Premium F1 carport at Johnson & Johnson and Dow Jones properties.
The recent project at GE combines Solaire Generation’s Premium F2 solar carport with GE technology to support electric vehicle (EV) charging. It was the first installation to incorporate Solaire’s advertising and branding platform.
Company representatives will be available at Moscone West Hall booth 7128 on the 1stlevel to discuss Solaire Generation’s full line of solar carports. To view the company’s online brochure and product data sheets, please visit www.solairegeneration.com.

The cover of the March 2011 issue of National Parking Association’s Parking magazine highlights a three-page article about solar carports penned by Jean McGillicuddy, a member of Solaire Generation’s business development team.
Understanding the profound need for renewable energy production and water conservation, I saw the market opportunity for a product that offers both. The patented
design came from the understanding of how PV panels
perform and the creative integration of aesthetics and functionality.
August 19, 2010 – Solaire Generation announces the completion of a 1.1-megawatt solar parking lot project at a Johnson & Johnson campus in Central New Jersey. The solar lot will reduce Johnson & Johnson’s electricity costs and offset the facility’s green house gas emissions.
Heather Clancy’s GreenTech Pastures blog takes a look at the perks of solar carports for employees and corporations. Her article, ”Park right there, under the third solar panel,” sheds light on our recent installation of a solar system that protects 400 parking spaces from rain, snow and direct sun.
The project, which covers 60,000 square feet of asphalt on a New Jersey corporate campus, will generate 1.1 million kW hours of electricity each year, an amount equal to the annual energy consumption of approximately 112 U.S. households.

Here’s an excerpt from the “Really Cool Carport for Really Cool Cars” post:
Solaire’s solar carport has high energy yields, and yes, it can be easily adapted to allow for charging stations for vehicles! And what makes these carports unique is their clean design and increased safety – wiring is concealed while the panels are still ventilated! In addition, Solaire’s carport canopy wings have cantilevers on all four sides so they can accommodate any type of solar panel on the market.
