Cincinnati, OH Solar Canopy Solution

The Cincinnati Police Department has opened a new location for the District 3 headquarters. The new facility will incorporate a 273 module solar canopy to show the local community’s focus to consume renewable energy. The District 3 police station is a “NetZero” facility, meaning it consumes only energy that is produced on-site. Beyond using less than 50% of the energy required by facilities serving a similar purpose, the station has also received LEED platinum certification.

Being headquartered in Cincinnati, RBI Solar was chosen to design, engineer and install the CP-K canopy; which will produce over 83kW of clean energy. Several other Cincinnati based companies constructed a variety of green energy products, such as geothermal wells, to create a symbol for local renewable energy innovation. RBI’s contribution of a solar canopy, will help keep the facility green, and provide coverage for police department vehicles.

RBI was tasked with designing and installing the 2,641 module canopy at the headquarters of the local police force. The CP-T canopy was constructed with decking to provide shading to the vehicles underneath.
