Envision Solar Completes First Cadillac Solar Tree(r)

Submitted By Alyson Jamison

Envision Solar International, Inc., a leading sustainable infrastructure product designer and developer, announced installation of its new Cadillac Solar Tree(r) array at Fremont Cadillac Buick GMC. Energy produced by the installation will go directly back to the dealership. This will reduce greenhouse gas emissions equivalent to the consumption of 2,500 gallons of gas, or 52 barrels of oil, on an annual basis.

"The Solar Tree(r) will generate approximately 33,000 kWh of clean energy from a highly architecturally accretive platform," said Desmond Wheatley, President and CEO of Envision Solar. "We've also implemented design enhancements provided by the Cadillac team to make the system uniquely theirs and supportive of the renowned carmaker's brand in a very positive and aesthetically pleasing way."

Equipped with integrated electric vehicle charging stations, the Solar Tree(r) can generate enough renewable energy to charge six electric vehicles each day. Envision Solar's proprietary tracking system, EnvisionTrak(tm), causes the array to follow the sun, capturing more of its energy and increasing electrical output by nearly 25 percent over typical fixed solar installations.
