Kern Solar Structures LongSpaN™ Carport is the ideal solution where power generation is the primary goal, and a large single area needs to be covered. The LongSpaN™ solution excels in cases where the extra square footage that is typically uncovered, such as drive aisles, is valuable space when trying to meet power generation goals. When utilizing a LongSpaN™ structure, spans upwards of 80' can be achieved for a single structure, allowing for more than 20% additional coverage in some cases. While most jobs do not require a structure as large and complex as a long span, there are some cases where a long span is the best option. By offering a long span solution, Kern Solar Structures makes sure that power generation goals are always covered.
Kern Solar Structures' LongSpaN™ Carport features either cold rolled purlins, Solar Speed RaX™, or pre-drilled mounts for tracker systems. These three module securement options allow for the LongSpaN™ Carport to fit the requirements for any power generation goal, and adaptable meet any customer and installation objectives.
Custom Solar Solutions
Kern Solar Structures' LongSpaN™ is custom designed to meet the exact requirements for every job. If the standard Solar CarPorT™ System cannot fulfill the requirements for a job, please contact a Kern Solar Structures Representative to receive more information and receive a quote for your project.
LongSpaN™ designs include a full engineering package delivered after signing of the PO. Due to the custom nature of these projects, the engineering process may take anywhere from 1-2 weeks after signing.
PV Module Specifications
This system is compatible with a large range of PV Modules by utilizing Solar Speed RaX™. Though Tier 1 modules are recommended, most widely produced modules can be used.
