Greener Product LLC announced today that SolarWing (www.solarwing.com) has been awarded the Greener Product Certification Seal for its new solar energy covered parking product. SolarWing is the first solar energy manufacturer in Arizona to earn the certification seal.
“Congratulations to SolarWing on this green achievement,” said Phil Gordon, Mayor of the City of Phoenix. “It is exciting that this new company with its innovative energy products is headquartered in Phoenix and is bringing green jobs and national recognition to our city.”
“SolarWing is thrilled to be the first green energy company in Arizona to be awarded the Greener Product Certification Seal. With our integrated, pre-fab solar parking products, not only are we adding shade to Arizona’s parking lots, but we’re generating solar energy that is put directly into the grid,” said Sandy Werthman of SolarWing.
The pre-fab product’s integrated design features a unique canopy system that includes a sandwich of solar panels and LED lighting. Each SolarWing contains twice as many solar panels as traditional solar parking and is positioned to optimize the sun’s power. Because of its unique design, SolarWing can capture more energy and put it back into the grid, significantly reducing an annual electric bill. The prefabricated construction provides for quick and easy installation.
The Greener Product Certification Seal demonstrates that a product has been evaluated against the LEED and/or NAHB green building standards using internationally recognized third-party certification organizations, laboratory test results and/or other supporting documentation.
The Seal confirms that the product complies with LEED and/or NAHB standards and may earn credits that contribute to certification under these green building rating systems. Only building products that meet the standards are awarded the Greener Product Certification Seal.
