Renewvia has a large fourth system underway for Sonic Automotive at EchoPark Grand Prairie, located in the Dallas suburbs.

The Lone Star State has led the nation since 2015 in highest number of major hail events (storms a year that produce hail one inch in diameter or larger). Once it's commissioned, these innovative carports, complete with energy-efficiency under canopy lighting, will protect 626 cars and SUVs from millions of dollars’ worth of hail and sun damage, while generating more than 1 MW of renewable energy.

“Based on in-depth analysis of solar canopies and alternative forms of covering,” said Renewvia President Eric Domescik, “we worked with Sonic Automotive to customize a solution that not only advances their commitment to sustainability, but also mitigates the rise of insurance costs when the next big storm hits.”
