Fitzgerald Auto Mall was looking for a way to offset energy use, reduce operating costs and provide shaded parking on top of its newly-constructed parking garage for its customer vehicles and fleet.
Aurora designed and installed an 890 kW long-span canopy PV system for the parking garage, located in Gaithersburg, Maryland. The system utilizes 2,475 SunPower® 360-watt modules to cover the top of a 44,600 square foot parking garage—the equivalent of just over one acre of solar.
Fitzgerald Auto Mall’s solar canopy is expected to offset 83% of the auto
mall’s existing campus power needs, saving the organization an estimated $258,000 in electricity costs in the first year alone and is projected to reducethe organization’s carbon emissions by more than 19,000 metric tons over the next 25 years.
