Solaire Generation has completed its first installation using its Long Span R5 canopy system, a new product designed for multi-level parking garages.

The 684 kW installation is at the New England headquarters of an unspecified Fortune 100 company. Features of the canopy include Solaire's Max Rack Water Management SystemTM and Max Rack Snow Guard, which provide protection for employees and vehicles against sun, snow and rain, the company notes. The canopy is designed to withstand 55 psf snow load and 100 mph winds.

The Long Span R5 design optimizes system size and productivity, providing a five-degree tilt with southern exposure, regardless of garage orientation. A ground parking lot version of the Long Span is also available.
