Zénith de Pau

Maximum reliability with SUNNY TRIPOWER 15000TL

The roof of the open-air parking lot next to the Zénith de Pau concert hall in Pau, France, is one of the country’s largest public solar carport projects.

This type of PV roofing is particularly appealing because it allows for large PV plants to be installed in urban areas without competing for usable land. A total of 105 solar carports were set up on a 25,000 m² parking lot. The PV modules also serve as a roof for the parking lot, protecting patrons’ cars from the weather and the sun. The space-saving integration of the SMA Sunny Tripower inverters fits in perfectly with the project, presenting a very aesthetically pleasing solution.
