Solar Power Inc. (SPI) has been selected by Temescal Canyon RV to build the largest elevated solar recreational vehicle (RV) parking structure in the world. The RV park, located in Riverside County adjacent to the City of Corona, will incorporate a 1.75 megawatt DC solar system utilizing SPI’s solar modules. The system will provide both power generation as well as covered parking. The project is scheduled to begin later this month and will be completed by July.

“This is going to be a great project for our client and for us,” said Bradley Ferrell, President of Business Development for Solar Power, Inc. “It is especially rewarding because it is the result of our success with the first project we executed for them. It’s also a milestone as the largest photovoltaic solar structure of its kind anywhere. We look forward to working with them again in the future as they continue to include solar energy in their projects.”

The Temescal Canyon RV storage facility will be comprised of 400 stalls of which 280 will offer covered parking by the elevated solar system SPI is developing. While this is their largest project of its kind, SPI has worked with the property group overseeing the project. In 2008, they developed a 160 kw system for the Temescal Canyon Storage Center which is adjacent to the soon to be completed solar elevated RV parking structure.

“Solar Power, Inc. executed a cost-competitive, high-quality system installation at our self-storage facility. They were very easy to work with and we couldn’t be happier with the finished result. Their products and their design and installation teams are world-class,” concluded Sean McCoy, General Manager, Temescal Canyon RV, LLC. “We look forward to working with their team once again on this project.”
