Blue Cross Blue Shield Memphis solar canopy

Blue Cross Blue Shield, a national health insurance provider, continued to demonstrate its commitment to corporate responsibility and sustainability with a 81.90 kW solar carport at its Memphis, Tennessee facility. Our cost-effective “T”-shaped carport structure was the right solar mounting solution for this budget-driven project, with 4 I-beam columns supporting 252 PV modules.

RBI Solar’s general contractor’s license in Tennessee was used to obtain a business license and permit from Shelby County, TN to construct the carport. In order to keep Blue Cross Blue Shield’s carport project on schedule and within budget, parts of the schedule were condensed and work was performed on weekends to achieve a very quick turnaround.

In addition to its insurance plans, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Tennessee is actively ensuring the health and livelihood of future generations through its green initiatives. Their Chattanooga campus is currently the largest LEED Gold-certified corporate campus in the state and the second largest in the U.S.
