May 21st, 2014…Indianapolis, Indiana – iSun Energy LLC. has collaborated with Tom Wood Management to construct a solar powered electric vehicle carport at the newly built Tom Wood Subaru, in Indianapolis, Indiana. The event was scheduled to coincide with the Electric Drive Transport Association conference, being held in Indianapolis at the same time. The solar charging carport system was developed by iSun and combines north American-made electrical equipment from Eaton Corporation (ETN- NYSE), with solar modules by Silfab Americas.
“Tom Wood is once again leading the way on cleaner, greener transportation practices that conserve energy, reduce pollution and improve our environment,” Jeff Wood, President of Tom Wood Management, said. “Having been at the forefront of the electric vehicle revolution, when we began our journey with the THINK car, our group has maintained leadership in the Indianapolis area when it comes to supporting the electric drive community and Mayor Ballard’s desire to help make the greater Indianapolis area, one of the greenest in transportation in America.”
The isola™ 8.5 kilowatt (kW) solar carport project was managed and developed by iSun Energy of Montreal, Canada, one of the leading integrators of advanced emobility technologies in the world. The Italian designed structure is designed to be 100-percent waterproof and fully wind, snow and seismic code compliant.
“iSun Energy is committed to helping dealers like Tom Wood around the world deliver on their citizens’ dreams of a greener tomorrow,” said Sass M. Peress, CEO of iSun Energy. “Built just when America’s green transport community is gathering in Indianapolis for a week of emobility events, this station clearly demonstrates how automotive dealerships can help power green consumers and fleets sustainably.”
This innovative solar powered EV charging station will help reduce Indianapolis’ greenhouse gas emissions by more than 200 tons and permit more than 500,000 miles of clean driving.
