LSX ventures again into the Middle East
Solar translates without words
LSX architecturally builds a bridge from North America to the Middle East
January 14, 2014 - To see the Lumos LSX solar modules make the long trip from North America to the Middle East is truly inspiring: the need for aesthetics in solar is across the globe. Without anyone saying a word, the second of two LSX250 Series installations by local Lebanese architectural company, Azadian & Cie, is a perfect example of maintaining the architecture of the existing structure and seamlessly adding in solar.
The Lebanon Mitsubishi Show Room's LSX elevated solar awning is a beautiful example of architectural simplicity where the system blends into the building's architecture while simultaneously standing out in the front of the building as solar system generating clean energy for shoppers looking at the vehicles in the show room. In addition, the installation of a solar system to one of their showrooms is a perfect compliment the company's commitment to "Drive@earth".
Mitsubishi's "Drive@earth", is the company's commitment to co-exist with people, society and the Earth. The 4.8kW solar system will generate over 6,500kWh/year of electricity for the showroom which will reduce their carbon footprint by 4.6 metric tons each year so they will better co-exist with the people, society and environment of Beirut, Lebanon.
Project Spotlight Specs:
- Location: Beirut, Lebanon
- System Size: 4.8kW
- Module: (20) LSX250 Series, 240W clear backsheet modules
