Hail Protection | Commercial Distributed Solar Canopy | LED Site Lighting
Utility: Oncor

Texas 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). In order to protect Sonic Automotive's Mercedes-Benz of McKinney, located in the Dallas suburbs, Renewvia commissioned a solar canopy system to cover 301 luxury cars and SUVs from hail and sun damage. The solar carports will produce nearly70 percent of the power needed to operate the dealership over the course of each year, which cuts an additional 771 metric tons of CO2 annually.
