ADESA 4.23MW Carport Canopy Solar Array

Framingham, MA

ADESA, a recognized as a leader in vehicle auctions in North America, sought to save money on their electricity costs and reduce their reliance on the grid by installing a 4.23MW solar carport project at their Massachusetts facility.

Conti was responsible for all design, engineering, procurement and installation of the 4.23MW DC photovoltaic (PV) carport solar array. This particular carport is unique because it utilizes a long-span structure which allowed us to most efficiently utilize the parking lot area. Conti’s scope of work included design and installation of the foundations, steel canopy structures, lighting, interconnection, AC and DC feeders, DC disconnects, string inverters, and panelboards.

Construction of the array was accomplished in multiple phases while keeping the parking lots active for ADESA’s operation and daily intake of vehicles. There are five canopies in total. Each canopy is approximately 100’ wide and 500’ in length. These canopies hold over 11,000 modules.

This carport array, which provides approximately 88 percent of the power at the facility, is the largest solar carport project in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
