The Solar Canopy is an ambitious project that takes a giant leap forward in implementing sustainable energy production at the University of Manitoba. UMEARTH is committed to taking a practical approach when tackling issues such as climate change, building solutions that make a measurable difference.
The goal of this project is to design a solar canopy that can both capture sunlight for power and protect cars from the elements. The solar canopy will be designed for implementation over U lot. Some extra features of the solar canopy will be an LED lighting system to increase parking lot safety and represent indigenous culture by incorporating designs from indigenous artists. The solar canopy will be an innovative project that will also promote renewable energy solutions on campus.
