Quest Renewables Inc. congratulates Imagine Energy on the completion of a 1.02-MW solar array for Montgomery Park, Portland’s second largest office building, along with three other nearby buildings owned by the Bill Naito Company. The array is one of the largest solar PV installations in Portland, Oregon. The array will generate approximately 1 million kWh.
The system features 10 of Quest Renewables’ QuadPod solar canopies. Imagine Energy completed the installation of the 304-kW QuadPod portion of the system in February of this year. A time lapse of the QuadPod system installation is below.
95% of QuadPod’s construction activity, including assembly and wiring, takes place on the ground. After assembly and wiring, the solar canopies are lifted by crane for final installation, minimizing overhead work and optimizing worksite safety. Worksites are safer and more efficient with construction crews working on the ground and not at height.
The QuadPod system is also able to sustain the greatest power density (measured in kilowatts per square feet) as compared to any other carport system on the market. This is attainable due to QuadPod’s ability to span drive aisles as opposed to just covering the parking spaces.
