Geopeak Energy Completes Parking Canopy Solar Project for L’Oreal

August 16, 2016

GeoPeak Energy of Somerset, NJ finished installing a 997kW parking canopy solar system at L’Oréal USA’s Piscataway, NJ manufacturing facility.

This is GeoPeak Energy’s third solar system at the site, finding innovative ways to increase the site’s solar capacity. This solar installation is one of the largest contiguous parking canopy solar systems on a manufacturing site in the country, and provides several benefits to the L’Oréal site. In addition to the renewable electricity generated by the solar panels, the canopy is equipped with LED lighting and electric vehicle chargers.The solar parking canopy system was custom designed and engineered for the site from the ground up to accommodate the site’s constraints and to maximize the area available for solar. The custom design by GeoPeak Energy allows for 14 feet clearances for large vehicular access, provides shade in the summer and cover from snow and weather elements for employees and events, without losing any existing parking spaces.

"We are excited to deliver this innovative and unique solar project, converting the existing parking lot from a cost center to a savings center for L’Oréal by building a solar generating asset above the lot,” said AJ Javan, Partner of GeoPeak Energy."

L’Oréal’s commitment to green power in the US began in 2011, with its solar installation at this Piscataway manufacturing facility installed by GeoPeak Energy”.L’Oréal USA was named EPA Green Power Partner of the Year in 2017 by the US Environmental Protection Agency, one of only two organizations to be honored with the title. L’Oréal was recognized for its hard work and dedication in green power efforts across its US locations, including its twelve solar installations under its partnership with GeoPeak Energy.
