Pvilion’s new Solar Sail charging station to debut in Texas

March 19th, 2012 / By: / Case Studies, Exteriors, Feature

The Solar Sail—with integrated LED RGB lighting—brings art and science together to promote clean energy for electric cars in the Austin, Texas nearby community of Pflugerville. The Solar Sail charging station has been installed by Pvilion as a demonstration to the green energy savvy Pflugerville community, which soon will become home to the largest solar panel array in the United States as a beneficiary of major investments in solar-generated technologies by local and national businesses and the Department of Energy. The Solar Sail charging station is located at the entrance to Pflugerville’s new Renewable Energy Park.

Solar Sail is a turn-key product from tensile-PV startup Pvilion that offers ready, out-of-the-truck “one wire in/one wire out” easy installation. It has been engineered by licensed professionals to meet permanent building code wind and snow loads.

The charging station will be unveiled on April 5, 2012 at an event sponsored by Pvilion and the Pflugerville Community Development Corp., in partnership with the Austin Chamber of Commerce.
