PARKING AREA SOLAR ARRAY (PASA) - PDF

Innovating Energy Security Through Implementation
There are millions of acres of paved parking in America. However, government agencies and corporations are beginning to realize that their parking areas are wasted assets. With renewable power regeneration integrated into the parking lots surrounding the nation's factories, malls, offices, hospitals and transportation hubs, much of the energy consumed by these facilities can be generated onsite.

Solar Seamlessly Integrated
Outpost Solar has a straightforward approach to renewable energy system design and implementation. Outpost Solars Parking Area Solar Array is a marriage of form and function. It is affordable and efficient. Parking lots are valuable real estate that can actually generate power and revenue. They provide additional LEED credits and should be incorporated as key sustainable design elements of any project.


The PASA has a modular design that is scalable to parking lots of all sizes and shapes.
Onsite power generation creates value and security.
Outpost Solar helps its clients identify energy saving and renewable energy production opportunities that reduce operating costs and strengthen the power grid.
Outpost Solar offers scalable, turn-key systems that eliminate the confusion around solar power.
Covered parking spots are often designated as premium or reserved spaces.
Our professionals can provide full project management services.
We provide a range of financing options that take advantage of federal, regional, state, and local programs.

The U.S. Federal government is the world's single largest consumer of electricity. In order to mitigate the financial and environmental costs, two recent federal acts, the Energy Policy Act of 2005 and Energy Improvement and Extension Act of 2008, together mandate the increased use of renewable energy (up to 5% total by 2010-2012) in a manner that maximizes site potential, lowers consumption, advances environmental goals, and optimizes operation and maintenance. All of these goals are met in superior fashion by innovative solar panel designs that adapt developed real estate (parking areas) to produce clean, secure, reliable electricity. When combined with energy efficiency, Federally-controlled parking areas become net-producers of electricity to feed back into the grid.
