A beautiful solar installation

To date, this is the prettiest solar installation I have sold. It was in Oakley, Ca…. waaaaay out of my territory of San Francisco.

Our engineer gave the customer the specs required by code for the trellis, and the customer built the structure because he was a contractor. Then our guys came in and did the install, and it’s really pretty looking. They are going to put in pavers underneath it and some patio furniture. It’s a hell of a way to shade your patio.

The system is a giant for a residential application at 7.74 kW, and by the time I got there to snap these pics it had already generated 43kWh or electricity that day, and it was only 3:30 PM.

I am looking for engineering for my project. Problem is the cost of engineering is so crazy.


What is the module type and configuration and what inverter did you use in this installtion? Very attractive!

If you flatten it you can have more functional use of the wood structure as a nice place to enjoy shade! There is a company in San Diego you should talk to Envision Solar. They specialize in beautiful PV shade structures, yours would be awesome with their tweaking (I’m an architect).

Looks beautiful.


Now, that looks really cool. Never thought a solar energy set up could be so functionally attractive! Great wood-work on the framing.
Can you email me for an estimate on my house please? We have a swimming pool and spa, next to the vineyard. This set up would be perfect. Need design and cost information please.
