SOL-50 Solar-Carport story
SEN invests in Solar Carport, Start of construction: 10th July 2014
Electricity prices steadily increase. Therefore we had the idea to decrease our electricity prices in our transport and production center in Grasberg/Germany longterm. All our hall roof surfaces are occupied with solar modules but the produced electricity is feed-into the public net, thus we had to find an alternative to the normal on-roof installation.
The solution was our solar carport. No sooner said than done! Just in front of our central stock twelve carport places are built up until 1st August 2014 in the form of two group carports for 6 cars. They are equipped by 160 standard modules in total. The modules form at the same time the carport roof surface and produce as a peak value about 32 kilowatts. Have a look on this side during the next three weeks and see the completion.

Best sunshine again, the chances are good that the two 6x solar carports (wooden frame) can be finished today.
The wood is normally left in its natural state, in this special version primed grey.

One half of the solar carport is standing. The carport frame construction is made of extremely weather-resistant glued laminated timber, glued with melamine resin, thus warp-resistant, extremely durable and has a high moisture resistance.
The wooden scaffolding of the carports is standing. Next step: Installation of SOL-50 Mounting System.
