Clark Building Parking Canopy

Middleton, WI

Clark Building Parking Canopy

Jeffers Property Management took the bold step of purchasing a 374 kW solar parking canopy. 1,100 solar panels now adorn – and cover – the top floor of the five story structure.

SunVest designed and installed the City’s largest solar parking canopy that brought a historic building into the modern age in one bold, visible statement. The idea for this solar installation instantly became part of our long-range energy plans for the Clark Building.

– Josh Jeffers

An elaborate steel infrastructure was designed, craned, epoxied and erected to support the panels. Electrical conduits from the array run beneath the floor to an inverter arrangement just north of the array. AC power from the system is delivered to the main distribution panel five stories below.
