By Editor


Greentech Lead America: renewz sustainable solutions, a provider of green technology services, has formed partnership with Eaton and the Lansing Board of Water & Light (LBWL) to install a solar powered electric vehicle carport at the riverside Lansing City Market. 

The solar charging car port system was developed by renewz and combines American made electrical equipment from Eaton and structural components by Giulio Barbieri S.p.A. of Italy.

The isola 5 kilowatt (kW) solar carport project was managed and developed by renewz and features patent-pending Integrated Power Solutions and EV chargers from Eaton. The modular structure also includes SILFAB Americas solar panels, high-tech LED lighting and highly visible side and top ad banners. It is designed to be 100-percent waterproof and fully wind, snow and seismic code compliant.

This innovative solar powered EV charging station is intended to generate enough clean, renewable energy to recharge LBWL’s Volt fleet or consumer electric vehicles for 25 years. It will reduce Lansing’s greenhouse gas emissions by more than 115 tons and permit more than 300,000 miles of clean driving, the company said.
