Lansing, MI installs solar EV charging station good for 300,000 emission-free miles – AutoblogGreen

The city of Lansing, MI, will reduce emissions and save money on its electric bill by going solar. Lansing celebrated Earth Day with the installation of a five-kilowatt solar carport, called “Energy Parking,” supplied by Italian companyGiulio Barbieri S.p.A. and its Canadian partner renewz sustainable solutions inc.

The installation of the solar charging station at the riverside City Market will generate enough renewable energy to recharge the plug-in vehicle fleet of the Lansing Board of Water & Light, the municipal utility that provides electricity and water to the residents of Lansing. It’s projected to reducing Lansing’s greenhouse gas emissions by more than 115 tons and power about 300,000 miles of clean driving over the next 25 years.

The EV charging station was developed by renewz with chargers by Eaton and solar panels by SILFAB Americas; LED lighting and highly visible side and top banners were also installed. The modular aluminum structure was designed with Michigan weather in mind. The structure is 100 percent waterproof and fully wind, snow and seismic code compliant.
