Solar Pergola

This Hugh Lofting Timber Framing crafted pergola, which we refer to as the "solar pergola," was designed by Sustainable Solutions Corporation in Royersford, PA. It was constructed out of yard salvaged Douglas Fir. The 5.85 kW solar array consisting of Sanyo Bifacial Photovoltaic panels generate electricity from the sunlight on top of the panel as well as from reflected light on the bottom face of the panels. The translucent panels form a waterproof roof for the pergola which will be enclosed with glass and screen panels to create a unique outdoor living space while generating approximately 75% of the electricity for the home.
