LightWave Solar Installing Largest Solar PV-EV Parking System in TN

Experienced engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) firm LightWave Solar continues to help lead Middle Tennessee towards a cleaner future with the installation of two new solar photovoltaic (PV) parking canopies at City Square Shopping Center in Hendersonville, located about 20 miles north of Nashville. The highly visible solar canopies are designed to power the shopping center’s 10 electric vehicle (EV) charging stations. At 47.5 kilowatts, the solar parking system will be the largest in Tennessee. Construction began this month.

“The solar canopies will demonstrate their inherent benefits including shade, shelter, and clean, renewable electricity for EVs and the local power grid,” says City Square Shopping Center owner, Greg Smith, who has as many or more public EV charging stations than any site in Tennessee.  “When our shoppers’ and tenants’ EVs are powered by solar, they will have an even smaller carbon and pollutant footprint since the fuel used to charge the vehicles will be sunlight.”

TVA Solar Program Update

TVAThere is still time to get in the 2014 TVA Green Power Providers program which allows 4 MW of residential solar projects and 6 MW of commercial solar projects.

As of June 9th, 120 kW of residential capacity is still available. TVA will maintain a 30% wait list as projects in the reserved capacity drop out. For commercial projects, 100% of capacity is already reserved, but a portion of the wait list is still available. Get on the waitlist today! Once 30% wait lists are full, the program will close for the rest of the year.

TVA is no longer accepting applications under 2014’s Solar Solutions Initiative for projects 50kW-1MW. Program is 100% reserved, and we expect it to reopen in 2015.

Contact us today if you are interested in building a solar project in 2014! Time and program capacity is limited!
