Envision Joins Kyocera to Market Shade and Solar Energy

Arizona-based Kyocera Solar Inc. said it has partnered with a fledgling San Diego business — Envision Solar LLC — to develop and commercialize solar energy-generating carports.

Envision was formed by principals from Tucker Sadler Architects and the contracting firm Midwest General Inc. in July 2006. The two companies previously collaborated with Kyocera to create a “solar grove” of energy- generating carports at Kyocera’s North American headquarters in San Diego.

Envision will now offer a turnkey solution to companies wanting to build solar-energy producing carports. Kyocera will be the sole supplier of photovoltaic products for use in the carport projects.

The solar grove project at Kyocera San Diego reportedly generated 428,000 kilowatt hours of electricity and saved Kyocera $50,000 in energy costs during its first year of operation.

Envision Solar has its headquarters in downtown San Diego.
