The Premium

The Solaire Generation canopies at Dow Jones’ South Brunswick, NJ campus cover nearly 230,000 square feet of parking lot, making it the largest corporate solar carport in the United States. Dow Jones & Co. sought a robust premium shading solution to generate energy onsite that would be able to withstand winter snow load and control water runoff. Enhancing the parking experience for its 2,000 employees as well as visitors was also a primary goal, making Solaire’s Premium canopy an ideal fit. During peak sunshine the system produces about 50% of the campus’ electricity needs. Uneven terrain and multiple underground utilities introduced unique installation challenges that Solaire accommodated in its design and construction. In addition, given the considerable demand for parking on the site, Solaire worked closely with the client to manage scheduling and logistics, ensuring minimal disruption to parking while delivering the project on time and on budget.
