Commercial and community solar company Pivot Energy completed a 431-kW solar carport installation for the Intermountain Rural Electric Association (IREA), an electrical utility cooperative.

The solar carport, located at IREA’s headquarters in Sedalia, Colorado, combines beautiful aesthetics with functionality, using high-efficiency solar panels and a sleek low-profile design. The solar carport is scheduled to begin producing clean energy in early May to help power IREA’s headquarter building. The structure is able to house 130 vehicles and includes electric vehicle charging stations for onsite charging.

“We are thrilled to be able to work with IREA to help provide them with clean energy for their onsite operations,” said Tom Hunt, CEO of Pivot Energy. “From concept to the design and build of the carport, this was a unique and exciting project for our team to complete. The carport is a great example of how solar can be installed in a creative way to maximize aesthetics and functionality.”

Pivot Energy contracted with IREA for the design, procurement and construction management services for the solar carport installation. This is the first solar project they have worked on together.

“We sought a solution that provided covered parking, renewable energy and convenient electric vehicle charging stations,” said Pat Mooney, CEO of IREA. “We appreciate Pivot Energy’s effort on this project — especially their work to complete it after the outbreak of COVID-19.”
