The patented Solar Tree product was installed by Tampa Bay Solar using Envision Solar’s installation manual and process.

Envision Solar International announced the installation of its Solar Tree product has been successfully completed at 1810 West Kennedy Blvd. in Tampa, Florida.

The patented Solar Tree product was installed by Tampa Bay Solar using Envision Solar‘s installation manual and process.

This was a flawless solar installation,” said Steve Rutherford, President of Tampa Bay Solar. “It’s great to get a fully engineered product that we are able to install quickly and easily rather than going through a typical construction process. These tracking Solar Trees are eye grabbers and we are looking forward to installing many more of them.”

The original building that is now 1810 Kennedy, was the first Gold LEED building in Tampa Bay,” said Natalia Levey, owner and developer of the project. “We have always cared about the environment and our guests. To see a positive impact on the utility bill is a big bonus. The Solar Tree product was exactly what we were looking for. 1810 Kennedy is a work of art and the Solar Tree extends the art to our parking lot. The tracking delivers a lot more electricity while adding an unexpected visual enhancement to our parking lot. My husband is excited to charge his Tesla with solar power“.

Our Solar Tree product is perfect for this project,” said Desmond Wheatley, CEO of Envision Solar. “Hurricane zones are challenging for many parking lot solar solutions but our Solar Tree product is fabricated to be easily installed in any wind zone.”

Manufactured in California, the patented Solar Tree product shades eight parking spaces and does not reduce available parking in any way said the company in a statement. It generates enough clean, solar electricity to power up to 700 miles of EV driving in a day or to offset the equivalent of six single family residences’ utility bills. The system’s solar electrical generation is enhanced by the patented EnvisionTrak system which causes the array to follow the sun, generating 18 to 25% more electricity than a fixed array. The energy can be stored in optional on-board ARC energy storage for peak shaving, demand charge reduction or emergency power provision.
