Custom Solar Portico – Minnetonka, MN

Case Study on Solar Energy for Homes and Families in Minnesota

Project Overview

Ron and LuAnn installed a solar array in 2010 equal to 3.87kW. The result was so pleasing that they wanted to add more. Without additional roof space available, Blue Horizon Energy suggested adding a carport solar array over their existing asphalt driveway to not only mount the solar modules, but also provide an architecturally pleasing shade structure.

Project Results

The cedar framed structure, mounted on a masonry foundation, covers a new concrete parking space for one vehicle while providing an ideal shade free surface for 20 Silicon Energy solar modules. The production for this installation ties in seamlessly with their previous array and essentially doubles the amount of energy they receive from the sun.
